The Cheap Chick Feeder

  1. TexasOutdoorGuy
    The other day I had just hatched some quail and chickens, so I wanted something to hold more feed than a jar. This was made soon after.....

    3 in PVC Pipe: about $10 (for 10 ft)
    3 in X 2 in PVC Reducing Coupling: about $4
    Baby Chick Feeder: about $4

    1st: Push the Reducer in to the Feeder.

    2nd: Cut the PVC to desired length.

    3rd: Push PVC in to Reducer.

    4th: Add Feed and Put in Brooder!
    This feeder allows for you to have more food for your chicks. Sorry if some else already posed this, but I made this up in my mind. Next time I will glue everything together. This is a really easy and cheap project for a chick feeder. Hope this helps! ​

    Great idea. I was just wondering how to make mine where I didn't have to keep turning it upside down to fill it up. Thanks for posting.

    This is great for chicks and full grown quail.
