My chicks had been eating out of a jar lid and I thought it would be nice to have one of those poultry feeders that you put a mason jar in and not have food everywhere. So I made a special trip to the feed store and got a purple one. I used a pint jar at first and the brooder was nice and tidy. The chicks were happily enjoying eating out of their new service for 8. A couple hours later, quart jar in hand. I filled the jar with starter and put it in the brooder. And I thought "good." I went back a few hours later, I was greeted with sweet angelic innocent faces looking up at me, as I looked in the brooder and saw a massive puddle of feed on the floor of the brooder. There was still food in the purple part, the jar was empty and the feeder was upright. Just thought I'd share that. I am so glad that I can count on my wee chickens to do something to make me laugh.
