    Wall Feeder
    Adapted from Nifty Chicken


    Started out with plain wall. Studs 16 in apart.​
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Built a very crude box to attach to the wall.​

    Added trim to front of studs to attach plexiglass. Be very careful not to scew plexiglass in to tight. It will crack. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Cut a board to fit inside the box to control the downward flow​

    Big crack that I put duck tape over & a picture of feed bag on top. lol ​

    Shown below with 25 lbs of feed. Will hold 50 with no problem.

    Girls are wondering what in the world I am doing messing with their feed.

    All of this was constructed with things I had laing around. The only purchaes was the plexiglass at $2.15 a sheet.
    Thank you Nifty for giving me the idea.

    I wouldn’t have thought to use a blank wall and turn it into a feeder. Good idea!
