This chick feeder has a toggle bar on top and lips to help reduce wastage. It is one metre long so provides a lot of access to feed. This feeder is different from the Turbogrow or High capacity chick feeders in that it provides great access but for less time, that is less feed. The long length and thin depth means more feed can be accesed at once, in asmallish space. Suitable for a daily feed for about 100 chicks, then more frequently, this chicken feeder may well suit those raising broiler or meat chickens . One could leave the feet off for the first week then add the feet on for raising the birds. We would expect you would need to move to a larger feeder later but this will allow good feed access and has design aspects to help reduce wastage whilst allowing many chickens to access feed simultaneosly. We would recomend keeping an eye on the feed usage though.
