This product has been very helpful for raising young turkeys. However, I did find that it needed a cross piece in the center to make it stronger. The center eventually spreads out and the top doesn’t stay on. I fixed it by screwing a round dowel across the middle. Even with that said I will buy more when needed and recommend them to others.

The Apollo 20 feeder has greatly reduced the waste of birds scratching or beaking the food into the bedding. The feeder does allow bedding to get into the feeder when it is set directly on the ground, but I believe raising it higher as the birds grow will help with that. It holds a good amount of feed and is easy for the birds to reach into. One of the better "chick feeders" I've tried. The Apollo 20 is a bit too tall for the youngest chicks, so I think I'll try the smaller version for younger birds, too.

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 lightweight so sometimes it gets 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 feeder. I feed fermented feed to my meat birds, and these feeders work great for that. I used the small yellow feeder until 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. Can’t beat that. Another great product from Premier!
