For those who have this type of feeder do you have roosters and do they have any issues with the waddles/combs? My roosters are pretty big and I wouldn't want him to cut/injure them. (assuming they are big, my first rooster) I imagine you could use wider openings?? I keep food in the coop in the metal feeder which is working just fine, however when my birds face the wall on their perch, they have pooped on their food. IMG_4548.JPG IMG_4324.JPG

I just made a smaller version of this feeder for my chicks. I used two 1 1/2in. elbows. My youngest chicks are 3 weeks old and my oldest are 6 weeks old and they can all eat out of this feeder with no problems. I also made the horizontal nipple waterer and they all took to it pretty quickly.




Would that size pipe work for banties?
