I have two feeders and a waterer now. I do prefer the feeder on legs because the one on the post leans. Nothing we do seems to keep it from leaning either. I use this one for my silkies and figured they would do better with no posts in the way. My big girls don’t mind the legs. Keeps a lot of food, but make sure not to fill it up unless you’re going to be gone a while. We were filling ours up and found one had moldy food because the girls started molting and not eating as much. It was in the feeder probably 2 weeks. Guessing with temp
Changes and such, it just got moldy. Now we only fill about halfway so we can keep a better eye on it
I would love to see a design that sits more broad like the feeder since my chickens have a tendency to dig holes around it and I feel like it makes it kind of too heavy. It fell over once and I ended up putting a wood board under it rather than leaving it in the dirt and it has been wonderful since. I would highly recommend it.
Easy and convenient to fill
Hi Terri, Thanks for taking the time let us know how your CoopWorx is working for you. We always love to hear from happy customers. Thanks, Tom
My chickens can't seem to get the idea of drinking out of this waterer! I love it, but they don't! Can you recommend how to train them please?
Hi Mary, We have found that some chickens take to it right away and some take longer to figure it out. Can you try flicking the stainless steel pin so water drips into the cup and see if they will start drinking out of it. If you can get them to just peck at the nipple it shouldn't take long for them to figure it out.
Feel free to give me a call on my cell at 910-233-0502 to discuss. Thanks, Tom
Our now 9 week old chicks learned quickly how to use the nipples. Our issue is the effort it takes to refresh the water and sanitize the silo. If the silo is more than one third full of water, it is very difficult/heavy to remove. Plus, I then need to navigate around the chicks to get outside the run to dump the old water out while carrying this large object that is very heavy. I just hadn’t considered this aspect of the process. There is no way I could lift the silo if it were any where near filled to capacity. Also, they are almost always standing on top of it and doing their business. The slope does not hinder them at all. Perhaps when they are full grown that aspect of the design will work. For now, it is a bit of a poopy mess that I dread having to maintain.
