    Picked it up off craigslist a few weeks back...its currently feeding 30 aussie hens. What do you guy's think? Know anything about the company that made it? Got it for $40 bucks. Says it holds 130 pounds. I thought i did decent on it...she wanted 60 for it. I just think it's cool that it was made in my home state Indiana. Milford, IN is what I think it says where it was made on the lable.

    Quote:No...no singing lol. I just saw it and i knew i had to have it, via the website Chore-Time started in 1952...so this might be from the 50's!! How cool is that. I thought i did good on the price, i think a plastic 22 lb hanging feeder from the local fed stores run around 30 bucks...if not more, so i was VERY happy to give her my 40 bucks....i wonder how much it's worth actually?

    This is the only thing i could find on their website about my feeder..and it's in cartoon form..lol

    It's way kewl, it looks like it would be for larger poulty such as turkeys to me...due to the height of the feedsaver bars...(?)
