PVC gravity feeder

  1. Ur-ur-ur-urrr
    Here's the feeder I built for my brooder. The chicks made a mess with the plastic flip-top feeder, which kept getting filled with bedding... and the older chicks knocked about half their food from the 7 lb hanging feeder into the bedding, creating a lot of waste. This was a simple built using 3" PVC as the bins for feed, a 3"-2" reducer, a couple of 2" 45 degree elbows, a couple of 2" tees, a pair of 2" end caps, and some short sections of 2" pipe. Nothing is glued together, so removal is easy. The hardest part was cutting the feeding holes, and it wasn't that hard when using a hole saw. It should be fairly simple to figure out how to duplicate this feeder by looking at the pics.
