I have taken the feeder out of the brooder as the mess is just enormous. The chicks are billing out 3/4's of the food. The high sided tupperware container I put in there this morning allows them to jump in and out, scratch around and eat their fill then jump out again without spilling it all over the place. My question is, is sifting the enormous amount of starter feed they've spilled the past two days out of the shavings and offering it to them again wise? Although it would be no hardship to go buy another bag if I needed to, It sticks in my craw to waste anything.
