Homemade Chick Feeder From Empty Cd Container

By coberdor · Jan 11, 2012 · ·

    Here is my homemade chick feeder. I used 1 empty CD container, 1 empty cream cheese container (plastic cup would work too) and my handy drill.
    Completely free.
    It took 5 minutes to make.

    Here it is on top of my homemade brooder. I used an old console stereo, gutted it, fixed the lamp to the ceiling, replaced the old material for the speakers with screening, added the background from an old aquarium, done.

    Article needs more build details and instructions.

    It is hard to get empty cd cases now since CDs are becoming obsolete

    Hmmm, I don't have chicks yet so maybe the function is obvious to others, but not to me. How do you fill it, and how does it work?

    I think I'll have to try this and see how it works,,,, Good use of otherwise useless daubery ........

    Love it! This is one of my favorites that I've seen so far!

    Great idea.
    I am assuming the feed goes on the outside of the cream cheese container.

    great simple idea but similar question to last two posters - does the food go inside the cream cheese container or is it there to help push the food to the outside?

    Can you show it filled with food? I am confused about why you need the cream cheese container? Does the food just spill out of the holes in the CD container onto the ground? Thanks!

    I love it! Saves cleaning chick poo and shavings out of the feeder 50 times a day. Sweet!

    I love your "use what you have" approach! I can't decide whick is my favorite idea; the reused cosole or aquarium backround!
