I see you have been on that thread, did you make a wasteless feeder? pics?
Not only will it fix the rat attraction, but I won't have to add feed as often. And in winter I don't feed wet mash (because it freezes ), so this is perfect timing.
If my daughter doesn't have the baby this weekend, I hope to make one before Monday.
I know, great thread, right? So yes, I did make one to put in the front of one of my nesting boxes that I use for storage, I made it out of a kitty litter jug. you can kinda see it here through my summer hardware cloth pop door. I wanted a feeder in the henhouse that didn't take up any floor space
I did buy parts to make a bigger one for the run, just haven't had time yet to get it together yet.

(Love TSC's pine shavings.)
I love their shavings too! I get the flake, big and fluffy.
@erlibrd They also have Sweet PDZ at the clear lake feed mill. I think it is 16.99 for a 40lb bag, vs. 9.99 for a 25lb bag at TSC, a little more spendy

I took tomorrow off work to try and get ahead but now we are due for rain.... that will be a bummer for sure. Or I will end up toughing it out then end up deathly sick....
I know right? I have to finish up most nights, tonight included, with my head lamp on. terrible, it is too soon to be this dark already!

Hope everything works out ok for DH and yourself.
@lalaland It sounds nerve wracking to be sure! I'll put our daughter and baby in my prayers.
@Mistahbue Good to see you again, was wondering where you had got off too!
Everyone see the three planets lined up this morning? very cool.
