I’m VERY new to chickens, my 4 chicks are in a bath tub brooder. I got the little plastic mini feeder from TS, but now they are dumping it all on floor instead of eating like proper ladies- lol.. help! What should I do to keep it contained and not waste food that they are pooping in? They are 3 weeks almost 4. They should be getting to big coop in a few weeks...

I put my waterer on a 2"x 6" and add a second for the feeder a few days later and keep the waterer a block higher and add more blocks as time passes and finally hang both with wire, tape and a metal rod.

The bowl that the feeder just barely fits into does a pretty good job. If the bowl is much bigger then feed can still get billed out. Also there is a solo cup mod that works great too. I actually use both methods and there is only a few crumbs on the floor but make sure the chicks can still reach the food in the feeder when done.
