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…

Tractor Supply Co. Offers Curbside Pick-up

During these uncertain times, it’s understandably a worry when you have shop for the farm or pick up feed. I want to pass some reassurance your way and give TSC (Tractor Supply Co.) a big thumbs up for having online shopping with curbside pick-up. I was able to get everything I needed, called when I arrived to the store and my order (a truck load) was brought out by an employee who put it all in my truck!  No worries, shop TSC if you have one in your neck of the woods.

Chicks Wasting Expensive Feed?

Right at about two weeks old, baby chicks start knocking out the food in their feeders. It then ends up in the trash after they either poop on it, or we toss it when replacing shavings during our daily cleaning ritual.
Feed Waste in the Brooder

Completely fed up with wasting feed, and money,  I came up with this super easy solution. The chicks are still going to knock out their feed, that’s a given. But at least the feed can now be salvaged. ”

This feeder is merely resting on the bottom tray of an ordinary chicken drinker, raised to just a tad lower than the chick’s back.  The feeder can be hung at any height, either way, the drinker base is a great catch-all for spilled feed. These chicks are two weeks old, as you can see they are not having any difficulty accessing their feed.
