Homemade Chick Feeder From Empty CD Container

Here is my homemade chick feeder.  I used 1 empty CD container, 1 empty cream cheese container (plastic cup would work too) and my handy drill.

Completely free.

It took 5 minutes to make.


 Here it is on top of my homemade brooder.  I used an old console stereo, gutted it, fixed the lamp to the ceiling, replaced the old material for the speakers with screening, added the background from an old aquarium, done.

I love your "use what you have" approach! I can't decide whick is my favorite idea; the reused cosole or aquarium backround!
I love it! Saves cleaning chick poo and shavings out of the feeder 50 times a day. Sweet!
I like everything! I think I will retrieve that empty CD thingy out of my trash can.....
hehe the CDs will not have home tonight ..........................
Can you show it filled with food? I am confused about why you need the cream cheese container? Does the food just spill out of the holes in the CD container onto the ground? Thanks!
i have the same problem/question????^^^^^
great simple idea but similar question to last two posters - does the food go inside the cream cheese container or is it there to help push the food to the outside?
Great idea.
I am assuming the feed goes on the outside of the cream cheese container.
Love it! This is one of my favorites that I've seen so far!
I think I'll have to try this and see how it works,,,, Good use of otherwise useless daubery ........  
Hmmm, I don't have chicks yet so maybe the function is obvious to others, but not to me.  How do you fill it, and how does it work?
I'm a bit confused too.  Food inside or outside the inner cup?  Thanks!!
