That would be chock-full. And even so, chock-full means "Full to the limit; as full as possible." There is still plenty of room for your own feeds.

    Ah, please excuse my mistake. I changed "chalk-full" to "chock-full" so as not to alarm others.

    As for the literal definition of the term, I believe "brimming with" is also accepted, which was the intent here.

      thanks to both of you for the clarification. I was in MS Word and had chalk-full...I didn't think it was correct, but the synonym list only had "chock-a-block" and "brimming" as alternatives to "full to capacity". Long story short, I did a search on yahoo (as I always do when all else fails) and found here your discussion from what appears to be a year ago.

      The internet amazes me once again.

      Thanks again.
