HAIKU, HI
Delay feeding when there is lots of feed spilled around, then they clear it all up as they are hungry. Then when there is nothing left for them to eat give them their feed.
I also generally do not feed till about 9am that way i have found much less feed waste as they clear up yesterday's spillage for breakfast.

Well designed feeders will help but chickens will waste. They are birds. If it's scratch they'll clean most everything off of hard dirt.
