    Tractor supply or even your local feed tore should have a aluminum 1 gallon hanging feeder. I think they go up to three gallons. I think the 1 gallon is like 20 dollars. I don't keep constant food in the coop I let me chickens mow my grass in the yard soni don't have to.

    I live in Australia and have a rat & wild bird resistant feeder. It even has a storm cover, so you can use it inside or out of the coop.
    It is made here, but I am pretty sure that they can sent to the rest of the world. I don't work for this company or anything, but have been super happy with there products & service is wonderful too! It holds 4kg of food, & I have 6 chickens using it (not all at once). No chicken food waste at all, and the chickens worked out how to use it very quickly.
    The name is Dine-a-chook or this is the link

    Should be an edit button at the bottom right of your post. You just click that and delete anything that you don't want in the post. :)

    As you do not work for that company it's not an issue.
