My favorite feeders. I’ve used them for seven years now. I’ve bought many many feeders, but I keep coming back to these.
The big feeder works great and is tough. Just wish the top didn’t come off so easily.
The smaller feeders are also awesome... with an adjustment. As many have pointed out, sometimes the food needs to be shaken down because the outlet area is a bit short. Quick fix? Dremel with cutting blade. Take off the bottom and turn feeder upsidedown. Cut 1/4 inch off the bottom of the circular part of the feeder (the bottom of the biggest piece — the one with the grate to keep them from scratching.) Put two pieces back together and voila. Now the food has a bigger space and comes out easily.
The only other thing that keeps this from getting a five-star review — the tabs on the lid of the small feeder can break off more easily than I would like. I would like to be able to buy replacement lids because of this issue.
But quite honestly none of these issues are a deal breaker for me. I need feeders that can hang, are fairly tough, allow many chickens or chicks to eat at the same time, keep them from making a mess, and are easy to clean. Over time I have ended up giving or throwing away pretty much every other feeder type. I think I own five of the large Saturns and probably about 25 of a small ones.

Holds a good amount of feed. Seems to work well with pellets as well as crumble. Seems pretty sturdy.

I have had chickens for 12 years and I love these feeders. These are the only ones that have held up the whole time.

It’s wonderful and would be five star if the top stayed on bit better. Otherwise, I love it!

Our chickens used to scratch around in their food pan, scattering grain onto the floor. The new feeder has cut down the amount of food that was wasted and eaten by mice. We have 3 large hens, and the 3 lb feeder is wide enough that all 3 can gather around it to eat. If we had more hens, I would go with the larger size.
