    Good grief! I filled up the chicks 2 little aluminum feeders this morning around 7, and they've eaten about 3/4's of both feeders. Every time I look outside there's 4 or 5 butts sticking straight up in the air. [​IMG]

    I have found the same thing! I filled it up and look around and there are 11 rear-ends sticking up. I filled the waterers up this am and saw them pecking all the water droplets off the bottle --one drop @ a time... it sounded like someone quickly drumming the fingers on the table.
