Our new little ones are growing like crazy... and wasting food even faster. We're using a mason jar feeder and they are pulling out the chick starter crumbles like crazy. We usually raise the feeder which helps a little but not enough. Today after cleaning the brooder I simply set a glass pie bowl under the feeder. Well, I've done this solution many times in the past, but it finally hit home today how effective it is when only a few hours after filling the feeder I saw this: That's at least 65% of the feed that otherwise would have gone right into the bedding. Little buggers!
