Waterproof Chicken Feeder

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am new here and am currently using a 10lb feeder I got from TS.  It can fit about 4 chickens around it eating at the same time. The issue is that when it rains all the feed ends up getting soaking wet. We have high winds here in North Texas when it rains, and lately rain is all we have been getting. The bigger problem is that I do not go to the farm daily(the girls are in a predator free environment when I am not there) but if their food gets wet, it takes no time at all for it to go bad., then they have notta  to eat.

 

Does any of you have any recommendations for a feeder?  Thanks for any an all input.

There are waterproof range feeders. The other option is to keep the feed in the coop or cover the part of the run the feed is in.
