That is an awesome feeder too, Cindy!!! Didn't even think about drilling some holes to allow for water drainage. I'm actually going to try and talk hubby into building me a little lean to to keep the birds dry while they eat if it is raining.
Maybe I'll just try and build it myself, shouldn't be too horribly hard.
My CX are getting brave and venturing out into there enclosure a little more. They are grass eating little fools. Last year I had all of my meatbirds in the Salatin style tractor and just moved it every morning (PITA) and when they would get to clean grass they would pick at it but not eat it. So by my observation...if you're using a tractor so you can have pastured poultry, invest the money in an electric poultry net and let them run and you'll be able to see what it truly means when you say pastured!! I am beyond thrilled with this batch of CX chicks, they love to run around to catch bugs, eat grass and play with each other.
Here's a couple of pictures I took of them tonight. They will be 5 weeks tomorrow.
