No Mess RentACoop PVC Chicken Feeder Arrives

So far, the RentACoop PVC Chicken Feeder checked 3 out of my 4 boxes of approval. 1. Nice quality, 2. EASY to install, and 3. Fast delivery.
The last box of approval is, will it it work? Will there no longer be feed knocked or scratched out of the feeder and sprawled EVERYWHERE?
My current opinion is, it might be the best feeder I’ve ever had.¬† But I still have unanswered questions, will my chickens eat from it? Will it be a problem that only one bird at a time can visit the feeder? Can’t say, only time will tell. I’ll keep you posted.

Note: My birds are young, that’s why the feeder is low on the fence. The proper height of drinkers & feeders is easy to remember. Never hang them higher than a chicken’s back.
It’s also a good idea to keep the old feeding station in place until you’re sure they’ve learned to use the new one. The feeder does state this is for birds 12 weeks & older…. I figure they’ll have time to get used to it over the next few weeks.

Spill Proof Chicken Feeder

Just ordered a new chicken feeder, holds 10lbs and looks like it will solve the problem of chickens wasting their feed. I have a catch all under my feeder now, but it has to be emptied daily so it doesn’t attract ants. Ants are a problem here, I have to be pretty diligent to keep them out of the coop and nest boxes. Do you have this problem too?

RentACoop PVC Chicken Poultry Feeder with Rain Cover

This feeder (Amazon $39.95) boasts it’s spill proof, and it hangs on either wire or wood, hardware included. Dimensions are 5.5 x 5.5 x 17 inches. I’ll have to wait until my birds are 12 weeks to use it, but I’m looking forward to the possibilities of a spill proof feeder!
