I miss chops!!....oh well...I had caprese salad..tomatoes/mozzarella/basil and fresh cracked pepper!! awesome good stuff!!
Inside feeder for dry food. Holds 50 pounds. Outside I use rubber bowls for food and water, Same as wingstone. I may install a water trough inside this winter. Last year I used a 3 1/2 gallon hanging wateter. I may use it again this winter. The plastic ones aren't too bad to get the ice out.
I like the wood box idea..my problem is the biggins' like to get everything out and then scratch in the sand & I don't have alot of coop room.
I have a 3 pound hanging feeder for the dry stuff and a low-sided bucket for the FF. I fill and hang the dry feeder , they knock everything out. I take the feeder out..wait about 4 days maybe longer, depends on how much I can still see in the sand..then we start all over again. they get FF every day, some sort of 'salad' ..sometimes scratch...I know they are getting enough....
but we need to do the "tube feeder" because they are wasting alot of the dry stuff. They won't be able to toss it everywhere with a smaller/different and higher opening. I have a 1 gal waterer...it can hang, but I have it sitting on a block right now.
Do you have any issues with your birds knocking it around and spilling? ... I don't know how well the nipple/tube waterer is going to work, will probably have to go with the plastic waterer when the weather gets real cold as the water will prabably freeze in the nipples or the "tubing/plastic".
