    What hanging feeders would you all recommend?
    Plastic? Metal? Brand?
    So many choices, not sure which to get...
    Thanks.

    the plastic work great and are easy to clean, my only real suggestion is go big cause no matter what you will have more chickens that you originally planned on [​IMG]

    We use a plastic hanging feeder from Tractor Supply. I have a chain hanging from the coop ceiling with a dog leash hook on the end. With the hook I can easily raise the feeder as I add bedding. When I had a feeder sitting on the floor it was pooped up and always got bedding mixed in with the feed. This seems to work pretty well. Good luck!

    Outside of the brooder box I don't like plastic anything. I use Little Giant metal tube feeders, usually the thirty pounders. I hang them all because the feed flows better that way and I can more easily adjust them to the birds to cut down on feed waste.
