Here is a pic of my spankin new feeder that I made yesterday for my 4 chickens. I made it for two reasons - i was still using the mason jar feeder that I had since they were babies and I had to fill it up twice a day since it was too small. And they were making too much of a mess and wasting TOO much. So, I researched on here and decided to make my own. I saw one like this and made it. Supposedly it is too wide for them to roost on - so they can't make a mess and if I put it up chest level, they won't scratch it all out. Hummmmm ----- non of that worked out. As you can see - those stinkers all get in it whenever they feel like it and I watched them actually use their whole face and beak to swipe food out - so much for not wasting - now it is even WORSE. They can all reach it and eat from it. But, what can I do now? How do I make one that has less waste?!?! Strawberry pot? I saw that on a thread here once and really liked that idea - I just don't think my coop is big enough.
