    I have 16 quail and they are spilling so much food, I put a chick feeder in pin, and even put it on bricks but they just flick what they don't want out through the hole next to them I need a good feeder idea, please help, I give them about 1&1/2 pounds of food and most of it is on ground next day pleas help, the feeder has many holes probably 20.

    You could try not filling it full, just giving them a bit so they don't waste. (I understand my chicks are slobs) You could try a wall feeder too.[​IMG]

    If I don't fill it full they r very hungry when I do feed them and Idk what u mean by wall feeder, if u are talking about gravity feed, they will do the same thing.
