Automatic Wood Chicken Feeder

  1. BYC Support
    Submitted by John Riddell.
    A chicken can open it herself by stepping on the platform.

    "When she stands on the platform the door opens. It means pests can't get to the food, so less wastage. She took about three weeks to learn to use it."

    Omg I love it. So much food gets wasted. And that means money wasted. I definitely wanna build this for my girls.
