Sparrow proof feeder

Anyone try the chicken feeder which is a bucket with a bolt through the bottom that the hens peck on to release the feed ? Fed up of flocks of sparrows eating feed and pooping all over the house.

I have one, it limits the amount of feeds the sparrows will get, but you have to raise it gradually until the hens will literally jump to trigger otherwise they will enjoy playing with it and over trigger, crows will learn how to use it.
It is called trigger happy chicken feeder.
