Hi.
I recently upgraded from an upright pvc pipe feeder I made when I first for my chicks to a bigger no waste one...the tub with the pipe elbows pointing down. And I have watched for a few periods over the last few days and I just don't think they have worked out how to use it. I've seen two of them stuck their heads in the pipes but don't know if they have eaten anything. They all seem out of sorts today but have all laid their first eggs today (that's a while other post/question)
How do I teach them the good isin there! ? Don't want to starve them!
