I have a typical 5-gallon galvanized feeder... For the longest time, I would fill it up and the chickens would eat out of it normally and it would last a good week to two weeks. Starting a few months ago, the chickens starting throwing all the feed around everywhere! I fill it up and it's down to empty in a few days but there is feed scattered around and in piles in the mud of their chicken yard! It's so frustrating because I feel like I'm throwing money in the dirt! Does anyone have a suggestion for a different type of feeder or something? Or a way to keep my girls from playing with their food like this?
