What are these feeders?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I want to sell them. We bought the property with these scattered about. I can not find them anywhere on the internet. I know they are some sort of creep range feeders for turkeys. One has no rust holes and the other has rust holes in the pan and they are galvanized metal. I do not use them nor see myself using them so I want to sell them. Anyone have any ideas on what these old feeders can sell for fairly? Thank y'all for any help :) My chickens hide behind these and that's about  all the good they are to us.

I don't know what kind they are but I searched to the end of the internet for bulk feed dispenser for chickens and I didn't find anything less than $150. That was new, so I bet you could get $75 for each of them, maybe more if you did something about the rust...

Thanks,  Mirandaleecon :) Yes, they are nowhere to be found on the internet in my searches anyways. They would hold at least 500 pounds of feed . I am not sure about spray painting them. I might and I would leave the bottom where they feed untouched. The rust holes in the one will need plugged or welded.

There range tank feeders.

 

There put out in fields to feed game fowl. Most hold about 50 pounds of feed.

500?!?!  or 50?

How big are they (in inches)?

Nothing in pic to show scale....like a dollar bill.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Thanks Chris. These will hold at or over 500 lbs of feed. I am almost six foot and these suckers (with lid off) come up to my chest. I never ever put "tank" in my search criteria. I will try that.

That"s a good idea aart. I will go out and measure them in width and length (height) this evening and post what I their measurements are :). Yes, 500 pounds...a single sack of corn or all feed would only fill about a fifth of the beast.

I just got back inside and realized two errors I have posted. One is they don"t come up to my chest.  With lids off they come to my belly :) Two is that its a 50lb bag will fill a TENTH of the feeder..I said Fifth..Math comes slowly to me at time. Please forgive the errors :)
