    Nope, haven't used it - guess no one else has either since they haven't responded.

    The feeder looks nice and I have heard good things about using automatic feeders.

    I don't have any personal experience with this feeder, but I think you'll be very satisfied with it, especially if you're losing feed to wild birds or rodents. At that price, it wouldn't take long to pay for itself either. Be mindful that this type of feed will require some training of your birds, but they usually figure it out quickly.

    from what i've read they are very good. You could prob make one for less then 20 dollars but its up too you.

    I made a 50lb feeder like that just using scrap plywood for free.

    Yes I hve it and am very unhappy with it!! I have large chickens and they are not able to feed from this. Feeder has a half inch gap at the bottom of door that would not keep mice and other critters out! Beware! Customer service is lousy. And of course you can not return it unless its within 7 days.

    I built one like that - it was pretty easy and cheap to build. I liked it a lot but it took up a lot of space so I got rid of it.
