For a long time now, my chickens were emptying their feeders. Who knows why- perhaps from boredom, looking for the perfect pellet or just for fun! I wanted to share a creative solution to just this problem. It is cheap and easy and works will all hanging feeders. Plus you probably have the supplies already at your house. http://www.tillysnest.com/2012/09/outsmarting-chickens-at-feeder.html Enjoy!
