Chick Feeder

Why we love it

We’re new chicken parents (and certainly not animal experts) but that doesn’t mean we just bought a brooder kit and called it a day. We did our best to research each element to try to find options that balance utility, sustainability, ease of use (and even a little style if possible)… not the fastest approach for when we were trying to get set up quickly, but hopefully beneficial for anyone reading this!

There seem to be plenty of plastic containers available for feeding your new baby chicks, but we liked the idea of something more substantial and easier to clean.

This gravity-fed chick feeder is designed to fit on a standard mason jar top and is made of galvanized metal to resist rust (also check out the matching waterer). We got the extra big 32oz size mason jars (which we now also use for our own personal hydration!) Our thinking is that this a good solution for the brooder, and then we’ll move on to a different system when they grow up and move out to the coop!

We’ve got ours sitting on top of a 5.5″ hasami bowl (the tall style), to prop it up high enough so the pine shavings don’t get inside but the chicks can still reach it. So far so good!
