Sorry, I was never able to get a pic of it but if you read back through the post above I believe you will figure out how to cut the large hub end off a 4" street ell and use the hub to go over the smaller end which holds it all in place.  It looks real similar to Jimmy's just slightly different. 

 

Use your imagination and you will be able to make it work.

Ok, yeah, I figured it would be the same concept but with a larger pvc elbow. Thanks.

Well, thank you very much, now that I can see it, I gotta make one of each. Out of respect for design, of course.:highfive:

LOL - here's a photo of the same design.   Sorry the first 2 are a little blurry (my girls kept photo-bombing me).

 

 

In the first photo (left side) you can kind-of see the 3x2 reducing coupling inserted into the upper portion of the wye (I should have mentioned that the 2 inch side points downward).

 

The 3rd photo shows the "plug" in the front.  I put this in at night so nothing gets in.

 

Good luck!  :highfive:

pictures really are worth a 1000 words. Sometimes I just gotta see it first. THANK YOU!

I build this automatic chicken feeder and my chickens are happy with their feeder

post #39 of 39
So the chickens are to poke their heads into the pipe to get their food, and that's pretty easy for them???
