I've needed a feeder that is rat proof and I am hoping that this is the one. I have only been using it for a few weeks and have not determined if it is keeping them out. The lid is plastic which I know the rats can chew through in short order but I'm hoping they do not figure that out. The packaging for shipping could be somewhat better... it arrived with some slight bends, however I was still able to get it put together and working in no time.

I haven't been able to use it yet to rate it. I put it together correctly but it will open OK then it gets stuck open and doesn't close.

Not only does this product make the job of refilling chicken feed less of a chore, but it is valuable for keeping rodents down as they can't access it. It is easy to assemble and I have one that has lasted already for a couple years out in the run. The chickens had no problem figuring out how to use it. I highly recommend this automatic feeder!

The nuts provided aren't nylock and it comes a part after the birds have used it for a bit- I replaced them. Chickens caught on pretty quick but like to dig food out and leave on ground for mice :( not sure this is a product flaw-more of a chicken flaw.

This feeder really holds a lot of feed! I must have bought the smaller one last time. it is well made, simple, and it works. My young chickens have picked up how to feed from it relatively easily. the older ones have never really figured it out. the only negative would be that the food is so far down and in a very narrow slot that i usually have to "prime" the bin by mounding some food up for them to see. Then its a feeding frenzy!
