I have 10 RSL little males that I'm raising for eating, had them for 2 weeks (or so?) and they are driving me crazy with how much food they waste. I have them in a metal brooder with wire floor so any spilled feed goes through and becomes inaccessible. First when they were tiny I just was feeding them in a small oblong dish, but they would stand in this and kick it out everywhere. So I put thick blueprint paper down underneath their bowl but they would tear that up. Then I used one of those plastic containers that you buy spring mix lettuce in, and when they stood on the food inside that and kicked the food it would stay in the bowl bc the edges were so tall. Then they started perching on the top and toppling the container over and sometimes even trapped themselves under neath it (haha!). So I cut the edge off the top but they still managed to be able to perch and topple it. Yesterday I decided that I'd probably wasted as much $ in feed as just buying one of those stupid $4 feeders so I went and got a galvanized feeder that fits with a mason jar (already had the jars but they were for water feeders and the metal was all rusted. Been left outside for 7-8 years probably!) and filled up the jar last night around 6pm. To my surprise this morning the jar was completely empty!!! And there is literally a 1-inch piled high ring of inaccessible food underneath the wire floor encircling the feeder! I am about to go dig thru my scrap pile and make them a wooden box to live in and they can just live on their own poop and eat their own spillings mixed with their own feces until every third day. Could someone please give advice on how to stop the food wasting! (I hate wasting food, truly despise it. I'll go out and spend money on chickens, housing, fencing, and feed if that means I'll be able to feed my table scraps to them, rather than throw it away. Which is one of the main reasons I decided to get chickens lol.) Also I have 6 baby silkie chicks and I still feed them in the same tiny salsa bowl that I used when we first got them, they hardly ever waste any food at all. What's the difference?
