I have a 5 gallon metal feeder and find that I always have to go stir the food up a few times a day to get the feeding part full my ducks and chickens. Am I just being a mother hen and don't need to stir it up? Multiple times a day. Or is it ok to just leave it. I do get an awful lot of attention when I go near the feeder.

No reason to stir things up. You will get the same attention if you cone in with anything in hand.

Do you mean that the lip of the feeder is empty and the feed is stuck inside the feeder?

If so, you may want to try the little three lb feeders and have several of them. They flow much better. I set one inside a black rubber feed dish on the floor and another one I hang.

I have switched over to the smaller feeders and am NOT going back to the larger ones for that very reason- the feed doesn't want to flow downward.
