    I am thinking of doing meat birds again but wasn't happy with my way of feeding them last time. The birds kept getting in the food trays, can anyone post pics of the way you feed your meat birds. Thank you so much!!

    Sorry, I don't have photos, but I use a tray type feeder and a couple of quart jar feeders for 3-5 days, then I start them on hanging feeders, and keep hanging them higher as they get bigger.

    Our feed trays are home built. look s just the metal ones you buy, they are about 5' long with a handle going on top to keep birds out.... scrap lumber comes in handy....
    we have smaller feeder when they are small.... Of course most of our stuff is home built....

    We use plastic roof gutters cut any length you need. If they are too low they will get in them though.

    thanks so much I love the picture too. I had so much trouble with them getting into the food. We made homemade tractor out of pvc pipes and didn't think about trying to hang the food containers. I may try that this time around. Thanks again to all of you.

    Dang, I have a yard the size of your driveway!

    Nice idea on the gutter. I'll keep that in mind.
