    Our girls are such enthusiastic eaters, they've unscrewed their feeder. We're left with two bits of plastic, several washers, a spring, etc. needless to say we did not review how it was put together. Any images or descriptions as to how to reassemble it would be greatly appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!!!![​IMG]


    The "wing" nut goes on the post first then the spring then put through the feeder and then the base then the big washer then the hex nut. Hope this helps! One more thing, you can use the wing nut on top to make the base and feeder tighter together to make it harder for them to waste feed.[​IMG]

    I haven't heard of chickens doing that before, your flock must be over achievers.
