I have a 5gal bucket with holes drilled on the side at the bottom and a tray screwed to the bottom of it for an automatic hanging feeder. I put food into the top of the bucket and it gravity feeds out of the holes at the bottom and into the trough like ring around the bottom of the bucket. I have had this for about 4 months now and it was working fine until about a month ago when my chickens started wasting alot of their food by tossing it out of the trough like ring around the bottom of the bucket which holds the food with their beaks. It ends up all over the ground and because it is a crumble and not a pellet type food they never eat it. (I've read on here before if they do this to get a pellet type food and they will eat it off of the ground but there is only crumble food avaiable here). It's like they are just playing with it. Any suggestions on how to stop all this wasted food would be grealy appreciated! I am even will to build another type of auto feeder for them if that's what it takes. P.S. (I have 30 chickens in my coop).
