Less Waste, No Mess Chicken Feeders

Looking for a Better Way to Feed your Chickens?

Feed waste is expensive, and the biggest reason for it is because chickens tip the feeder and it spills all over the place. These new designed feeders solve that problem because the birds have to reach inside the feeder to eat.
The feeders I’m showing you below target this problem, and although they’re a bit more pricey, it’s definitely money well spent. Trust me, it’s time to pitch those ol’ fashion hanging feeders, reach a little deeper into your pocket and join the modern chicken keeping world. Lets take a look…

Got Baby Chicks Spilling Feed Everywhere?

Chick Feeder Dual Port

Chicks must be at least 1 week old to use feeder.
Feed your chickens—not the ground! This 10″ high, mess-free feeder is practically revolutionary for those of us who have been feeding our flocks the old fashioned way.
No-Waste! This innovative feeder solves all the problems of standard feeders. For starters, birds can’t spill their feed—the port design ensures it. Birds have to stick their heads in to eat. Lack of spillage not only keeps the mess to a minimum, but will also save you big bucks in the long run.

View Over 1,400 Different Types of Chicken Coops, and More

Which coop is right for your needs? That’s a question only you can answer. The only perfect coop is the one that’s suitable for your specific needs. You’ll need to take into consideration the climate where you live, how much space you have for a coop, and how large it needs to be to comfortably house your birds.

I’ve said it many times, but I’ll say it again, the more coop space the better. Always build bigger than what you think is adequate, especially if your chickens will be confined. Remember, happy chickens fill the egg basket!

Keep in mind that a coop should be convenient for you to clean. One you can stand up in is a huge plus. At the very least, a coop should be easy to access drinkers, feeders, and of course, fresh eggs. Bedding material should be just as easy to remove as it is to refresh. That means the door of your coop should be large enough for a standard size rake to fit through.

Follow the links below to view a collection of over 1,000 different types of chicken coops. I’ve also a collected 100’s of drinkers, feeders, roost types, brooders, and nest box ideas. You can also view tons of building plan options.
