I use this with ducks and they will quickly remove the rain hood and the feed gets wet. I tie this to a tree to keep it upright on uneven ground and the second hopper ended up with a gap so water gets in. I eventually stopped using the second hopper as without it 2 scoops of feed fill the one hopper and that is enough for a days worth of feed. I would consider this to be "user error" so if you followed the instructions you probably would not have this issue, but if you are like me this could be the result.
In the winter I just prop it up and it stays upright when it is full, but periodically they will tip it over when there isn't much feed left. I've had this for almost 2 years and it will last a long time, it is a quality product. At some point one of the screws inside (feed rate adjuster) full off and I think one of my ducks ate it so check to make sure it is tightened-I did not think to do this. If you use it with waterfowl please check this. If this is what she ate the result was not good.
I would not buy this again for a second duck pen but I will continue to use the one I have.
It would probably work just fine for chickens/birds not so orally fixated.
I'm going to give it 4 stars because most people will be considering this for chickens. For ducks I would give it 3 stars. I am not recommending it as a duck owner as it is fairly pricey for what it is.

Sometimes when I read product reviews on line,I’m struck that some poor folks simply have no idea how dumb they may be. Such is the case with this product. Complaints about no template provided to mark for screws: first, there is a template,well presented right in the body of instructions, awaiting the use of simple hand scizors; for those who never read the instructions, it isn’t too tough to take off the restraining bracket, hold it up to the area for mounting and mark the drill holes. This does not require an engineering degree. A second complaint about the top canister slipping off easily. I can only guess that this came from trying to carry the unit, perhaps filled, by the top cover handle. It is not meant to be carried that way, but to be filled in position after you easily remove the top cover by the handle.
Beyond being surprised by these comments, it assembles easily, and most importantly it is quickly accepted by the flock and works as intended.

Poor quality. Much smaller than expected. Plastic was warped. Not worth the high price.
I would not even give it one star rating but the rating system would not allow zero stars.

Valérie fron Québec,
Finally something without any waste! Must admit that my chickens loved to spill food everywhere so I gess they kind of miss the previous one but not me. NO! I Love it! easy to fill. I have the 20 lbs one and 12 chikens and so far so good.

Not too bad. Less waste than my other feeder. But you have to put it somewhere safe from the elements. I had to throw out a couple of lbs of food after a rain shower.
