I love how easy this makes feeding the babies. No more food spilled everywhere or getting yuck. However, I've had 2 troughs and both of them are curved up in the middle. This makes it not sit right, the doors to not open well unless I remove the trough, and the food spill between the trough and brooder and into the droppings pan.
Thank you for the review. The curve is there to provide strengthen to the trough. Open the doors from the top, and lift up to clear the trough. - The Hatching Time Team
