Waterers as feeders

    I have too many waterers and not enough feeders. Is there any reason I can't put the chick feed into the spare water doohickeys and let them gravity fill the bowls? I mean, I'll probably try before I GET the reply... but I wonder if it's a bad idea for some reason, in which case I'll stop.

    This morning, I ran out of food, so I got something else. Hoping the birds transition easily!

    The only problem is if the hole is large enough for the food to come out of. I'd be concerned it would get plugged up and not flow. You could, however, just make the hole bigger...
