Actually, I wasted a lot of time (and money) trying to mess with PVC and it was NOT easy, never could get it to work right. Looked it up online, and to properly really bend it is not that easy (and semi-toxic). And the conduit is more sturdy and cheaper than PVC. It requires a one time investment in a conduit bender, and it's not hard to figure out how to do (look up on YouTube and get a couple extra pieces to practice).
Just my opinion - if you can manage to get PVC reliably bent the way you want, go for it.
NONONONONONONONO!!!!! I can't hatch any more chicks this year after this - I have 20 coming in the mail at around the same time as the CLs are due to hatch. No April HAL for me...
I'll try to get it all in one post - might take a while.

Good luck! Thinking about you.
Busy day at work (I hate coming back from vacation - I could have used another several weeks!!!! I wish...) I'm enjoying the increased daylight and spent a number of hours after work straight until after dark preparing the lumber for the next tractor - don't want to lose momentum, and those older CL babies need to be moved outside really soon!!!! (Sally, I'm scrambling to built housing for existing and coming chicks!!!! Now you want me in the April HAL? Chicken math, get thee behind me!!!!!!)

Feather eaters are bad news but if caught quick enough can be treated I increase the protein in their diet use a game bird feed for a week if the feather eating continues I have tried pick no more lotion and I have used pinless peepers that I purchased from Murray mcmurray hatchery I also try to give them busy work so I will give them flakes of alfalfa hay (which has many benefits such as high protein grass) if I know for sure what chicken is doing the damage then a seven day timeout in a dog crate works wonders for an attitude adjustment.
