    I use this feeder for my ducklings, It might work for chicks as well. If you try this out please let me know what you think.

    Ok. One important note on this feeder; if you're using it for ducks, you HAVE to use a styrifoam carton, or they will get it all wet and destroy it.

    Do you know how many ducklings (day olds) could eat from this if filled twice a day? Thanks

    Well, I set up two of them, and the answer is 27, plus two turkeys. but only for the first week. I've had to upgrade now, as their appetites grow as fast as they do.

    Worked great, thanks.

    I'm so glad it worked! Yeah, Once they get big they destroy it. But it's great for the little ones!
