    I have a "Little Giant" 3lb capacity hangin feeder. I like it for my 7 2-week-old chicks, but they have discovered the joys of billing out their food (we previously fed them from a 9-hole round feeder.) I've put it up so it's roughly at the height of their necks, but they can still bill out pretty easily. Is there a modification I can make to the feeder to deter billing?

    Well... what I do is just pull it higher. I have mine as to where the chickens have to stretch to eat out of it.... they don't bill very much after that as they don't have as much head swing motion ability.
