I bought two of these feeders because I was so frustrated with the other chicken feeders that I had. We have very hot, muggy and wet weather in New England in the summer. I had trouble with feed getting moldy. These feeders solved the problem. There is a fair amount of waste and they need to be filled frequently but the feed stays in good condition. Also, I like the way they hang on the size of the run and save run space.

The hens love them, and they keep the food dry but I do find the moulded lips a bit of a pain. Reason is when you clean the feeder, every time you think you’ve dried it, some drips run back down.

Much improved from the original grub feeder. Easy to clean and fill and If you don't fill it too much nothing spills out onto the floor when the chickens start noshing.
