I do a lot of traveling, and when I leave, I don’t want to have to worry about my chickens starving to death. My old, store-bought feeder only held enough chow for about 4 days, so I decided to expand. In hindsight, I should have started off with this feeder, because it is much bigger, and cheaper to boot!
The only problem is that food is only drawn from the front. This can result in there being plenty of food left in the feeder, but your chickens won;t be able to get to it. To remedy this, I am going to either install a slope in the bottom of the can to divert the food towards the hole, or maybe just make another tray opposite this one.
