Whilst the size and ease of feeding food which remains dry is excellent, the small extrusion on the front damages the breast feathers so that each of my three chicken has a bald patch exactly where they rub against it when they feed. I am hoping one of the other designs will avoid this problem.

easy to clean
Love this as it is off the ground and keeps the feed pellets clean and dry. But I do find it difficult to open and remove the lid in order to clean it properly. Otherwise it is so much better than the other feeders we had previously
The feeder holds a good amount of food and attaches well to the mesh. However, clipping the lid on and off is so hard (I have given up on the front clip that has never closed) that I now aim the food through the holes. I have 2 and have the same problem on both. Also you need to tip the feeder to clip it on which can spill a full feeder and also the water version.
This feeder attaches securely to the mesh wall and keeps the food dry. But after a few months of use I have identified a few problems: it's quite big and it's impossible to make sure the oldest food is consumed first as you just top it up on top of the oldest food; it is extremely difficult to clip and unclip to empty and clean (Omlet promised me a replacement one in case mine was faulty but this has failed to materialise); and finally, my girls now have damaged feathers on their chests because the edge of the feeder when they put their heads in and out is abrasive. I wondered what was causing it and have now worked it out.
Omlet Says: Good afternoon Jill,
Thank you for your feedback, we value all reviews as this helps better our product for the future.
I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your feeder, I would be more than happy to send you a replacement feeder, perhaps the Cube feeder would be more appropriate for you as the edges have been rounded and there is not a lid, which would remove the risk of your chickens damaging their feathers?
Please let me know if this would be of benefit to you.
Great product, came well packaged and prompt delivery. Easy to hook onto the coop. Keeps my girls food clean and dry, which makes for happy hens. Would highly recommend.
Brilliant: holds a good amount of food and water, easy to use with 'grips' and easy to clean, have had various other feeders and drinkers but these are the best, a chance discovery so very happy indeed :)
