Chicken Feeder

I’m doing an automated chicken feeder and is a newbie when it comes to arduino. I just want to ask if how would I set up the feeding time. The feeding time is at 7:30 am and 4:30 pm. Is it possible by using delay () or should I use timer or rtc? Thank you in advance! :slight_smile:

Use the time library with time alarms supported with an external RTC.

I have a DS1307 RTC. Does it always have to come with an LCD? Because I'm just after the feeding time and not to display it on LCD.

Hi, just a tip, you should not double post your threads, please either delete this on or the one in Project Guidance. You will only cause confusion for yourself and everybody else. LarryD suggestion is worth following up, an RTC would make sure you have accurate timing.
