"Better have a long and thin arm"
My husband could not fit his arm in the tube to place the water float, so I tried. My finger tips can touch the top of the screw and I tried a few times to place the nut and washer before I dropped the tube a height of 3-4 inches, bending the float. The float is made from thin plastic and held together by a tiny pin. All you have to do is bend it a little and it will leak everywhere. For $70 I would expect something made from more than $10 (if that) of materials. Save yourself the trouble and make your own with a metal float.
Using the feeder and I love it the Sparrows had too go steal grain somewhere else the grain is lasting alot longer, not using the water too cold dont want it too freeze and crack
"Both I and the chickens love these!"
Best result we have had so far on ease of access/use. The chickens like these above anything we have used. I only have to figure out winter use for the waterer now.
Feeder: Pros: Easy assembly, holds a large quantity of feed and pullets took to it immediately. Squirrel/rodent proof so far. Cons: Round feed head does not fit well unless you customize the coop fencing Simply cutting the wire as I did leaves open space around the edges for animals to get in the coop. Only one chicken can feed at a time. Waterer: A mentioned on other reviews, there is a hexnut to attached INSIDE the tube which is impossible unless you have long AND skinny arms. However, the nipple attaches well without it. Cleaning is a HUGE problem. I had to resort to a toilet scrubber while I look for something else. The PVC heats up and slime develops quickly in a New England summer day. Well see how it does in the winter. Overall: My chickens like them and they maximize the usable area of the coop.
