I bought a treadle feeder from "The Carpenter Shop" and have had problems with it from the start. I have emailed them and received no response. Any suggestions on ways to prevent the food from getting wet or how to make it easier for the hens to get the food? I didn't realize the problem was so bad until they molted prematurely and when I picked one up she was light as a feather. I knew the food was getting wet- so I was putting less feed into it and I saw and heard them opening the door, but when the hen would try to get food she would fall off the step. So - I need someway to make the treadle wider as well... here is the model I have: Thanks for any help!
