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?

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!
