    Holy cow - 300 lbs only last 10 days?????

    I feel bad that my 50 lbs last only 3 weeks.

    As I asked on FB - so do you need a ladder to load that puppy up?

    Wow, 300 lbs of feed is a LOT of food! How many chickens does that feed in 10 days?

    Your hopper is pretty cool looking. Doesn't the grain in the feeders get wet when it rains though?

    Quote:Not too much because the chutes go down into the feeders. I have 55 chickens and 11 ducks. And about a gazillion wild birds.
