I feel compelled to warn others about my experience with this product. I originally purchased in order to reduce food waste that I was seeing from a ground-based feeder and this did help slightly in that regard although the chickens still manage to have a good amount of food waste with this feeder. My real issue is the MAJOR design flaw in how the system attaches to a vertical surface. The black plastic clamps shown in the stock photos attach to the feeder via 4 very flimsy plastic tabs. About 15 minutes after I installed an extension to the feeder I revisited the coop to find the whole unit had fallen throwing the entirety of the freshly filled feed all over the ground. It is laughable (and frustrating) to think that the engineer that designed this thought those 4 small clips would be sufficient to hold 20-30lbs of feed. Maybe I am alone in this experience but this product is not worth the money in consideration of this issue alone. The clips shouldn't even exist because it is not practical to move the feeder for refill, instead it makes sense to use a bucket to fill the feeder; in consideration of this those clips should be semi-permanent or at least much more sturdy. Unfortunately very disappointed with this product. I wish there was a way to upload photos so that I could better show this issue...

Love the product once it’s completed but mine it didn’t arrive with the screws to attach to my run or to put the bird protector on.

The Wise Mountable Feeder is awesome! I have tried a variety of other chicken feeders and none kept feed from spilling out when the hens pecked the pellets we give them. What a waste. Not so with the Wise Mountable Feeder—the pellets remain in the feed tray when the hens access their feed. No more waste! And no more feed on the ground to attract mice! Yea!

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.
