    Has anyone used these? They attach to the bottom of a bucket to make a gravity feeder; looks interesting....

    The learning never stops. Am sending you a picture of the screen . It shows where to click to insert image. Then follow the directions. You understand the benefit of a having a picture, way many people are able to help that way.
    Hope this helps you out. [​IMG]

    Looks interesting. Basically they peck at it to get food to drop out. So kind of like a trigger feeder.

    DO YOU HAVE ONE LIKE THIS??? Looks like chicken crumbles would just fall thru and make mess on ground. Scratch might have a hard time to come thru. I can think of many better methods of dispensing feed. THE 5 GALLON AND pvc ELBOW COMES TO MIND AS BEING MORE PRACTICAL.

    I have one but I live in a high rainfall region and it gets clogged when wet, but it should work in a drier area. also crows and magpies learned how to use it. you have to keep it high for them. the funniest thing is magpies hang around waiting for the chickens to use it so they can get some pellets.
    Google Wright feeder and trigger happy chicken feeder as well
