Personalized Feeders - Custom Made

    Remember those old time “Canister” feeders you’d see in an antique store or e-bay?
    Maybe they looked like these:

    Well, I always loved the looks of them and thought maybe I would actually buy one to give my son's coop a bit of personality!

    One day in my sign shop I decided to take it one step further and decided to personalize one for my son in order to boost his pride in his fledgling egg business. This is what we came up with:

    After a few other backyard chicken farmers came over to visit, they insisted I make them one too! so I gave it a shot:

    Since then, I've made a few for trophies at a local chicken show and some for a few guys who had their own logo design.
    My son loves his and shows it off to visitors even before he points out the chickens!

    I thought I'd post a few more examples:

    This is really cool. I bet you won't have any trouble marketing them.

    As an article though, this is not a good article because you don't share how to make them. (Which I understand, since I believe that you want to sell them).

    Great looking feeders but not enough in the page about how to make them.

    Thank you so much for the nice comments! If you would like me to make you one, Just message me!
    Here's a tip: it is really worth it to get someone to design your logo for you if you're not an artist type. Once you have your design - I'll put it on your feeder!
