If you want to free feed then all you need to do is buy two different feeders if in the brooder if not as they said throw it on the ground or use a rabbit feeder they sell them at your local feed store or TSC store check both for a cheaper price thats what I do or make your own feed alot of ideas here on this forum just do a search for them.

Good luck to you.

Something like a rabbit feeder is common and it is usually hung up on the side of the coop somewhere. Ive seen them made from large tin cans after this fashion, too.

I use the chick feeders - just the bottom part, but I don't see why you couldn't use the screw-on top too.
For my 5 girls the bottoms hold all the grit or oyster shell they need, as I seldom need to refill and they are healthy & eggs have tough shells.
