 PVC Chicken Feeder Lola 

 PVC Chicken Feeder 1 

Wasted chicken feed drives me nuts and I was determined to build a better feeder than those commercially available. After much research, contemplating dozens of designs and several iterations of my own, I am now happy with my feeder. There are no longer piles of wasted grain on the floor, which makes me, my chickens and my feed budget happy. I made my feeder, and you can make one too, for aprroximately $12.00 and in 20 minutes or less. 

This is the finished feeder in my "Little Deuce Coop."

This is a great idea for grit and shells....I went one step further by putting small holes in the dish (so if it rains the water flows through the grit and shells and doesn't settle in the bottom, it works great! Thanks for a great idea!!!
