Yep!! Purchased this feeder for my silkies. It does exactly what it is intended to do, holds food for them to eat. Pretty simple people. Let me tell you the best part about this feeder, it has a picture of a knife and fork on the front of it. How good is that, I mean lets eliminate the confusion between the water and food container, no more confused chooks. Pure genius!! pure genius!!. Who was the savant who thought of that.
