The large orange trough feeder is great for a large flock. It holds food well inside and not get pushed out. I use it for fermented and dry feed. My only complaint is that it is too light weight so sometimes it get knocked over. I now sandwich the feeder between two large rocks to hold it in place. Overall, I love this feeder.

I have used both the small yellow feeder, as well as the large orange feed. I feed fermented feed to my meat birds, and these feeders work great for that. I used the small yellow feeder till the birds were around 3 weeks old, and then I switched to the large orange feeder. The tops easily slide off to allow easy filling of the wet fermented feed. The birds can easily tip these over, but mine never do until they are empty. Put together an order that is over $100, and free shipping. Cant beat that. Another great product from Premier!

This is great for a small brooder set up and very affordable. The chicks seem to use this style more than our others, which have a center line rib. If tipping is a problem a few small stones may help to weight it and provide stability.

I've tried all kinds of homemade inventions, but this feeder beats them all. There is no waste and our dog finally met her match, she can't eat out of this one!! The large orange feeder works for my full size laying hens and also the smaller bantams and call ducks. Thanks for a great product! NM

The large orange trough is great. It reduces waste considerably. The yellow chick feeder is easy to tip over and just not very good. The shipping however for the products is way over priced. Will not order anymore products from premier 1 because of the high shipping prices.

The yellow size is easy to tip and I did have a chick get stuck inside of one no harm done . The orange feeders are the best great for growing out chicks and not wasting feed very easy to fill

Not really much improvement on the older galvanised models though not cutting and dangerous which is in itself a pretty big improvement. Would be nice if feeders had some solid weight to them.

Works best for small flocks (under 12) but for large flocks it is too hard to fill with enough feed so more birds can go longer without food.

I have been searching for a good broiler chick feeder that minimizes waste. Since our feed doesn't flow well in tube feeders, i prefer trough feeders. I've been using them in the brooder with week old chicks and already notice less waste in the bedding. So far, so good!
