    Automatic PVC-Tube Chicken feeder - tube angle

    The Adapter was not intended for going from 4" to 3", but as an end piece to prevent spillage. So you think that will not work?

    Automatic PVC-Tube Chicken feeder - tube angle

    Thanks, I'll try it out. another thing: I saw in a few videos/description that people have a narrowing piece at the end so the chicken don't pull the feed out. I thought about somethin like this. How narrow should the end opening be? I guess something like 3" is ok (I was thinking about doing...

    Automatic PVC-Tube Chicken feeder - tube angle

    Well that is the question. As the heigth is slightly above 2m (6,5ft) I can run it at 45°. Do you think that is not enough?

    Automatic PVC-Tube Chicken feeder - tube angle

    Unfortunately that is unfeasible, as the outher wall is thicker (insulated), and thus I do not want to cut to many openings inside. The inside divider is thin, and I wanted to have an opening where I can take out the eggs from the storage compartment.

    Automatic PVC-Tube Chicken feeder - tube angle

    Hello, I am at the moment planing my first chicken coop. I am planning on using an old insulated reefer trailer (approx 7m x 2,4m ~22' x 7'). I am also planning on putting in a wall so I have a storage area. I plan to make the pvc-tube feeder refillable from the storage compartment so I do...

    automated reefer coop questions

    Yes, I am aware of that recommendation, unfortunately that is for passive ventilation, and thus useless for active ventilation planning purposes (passive ventilation: area, active ventilation:volume). I found recommendation for 0.1 cubic feet of air flow per minute per pound of body weight of...

    automated reefer coop questions

    Oh, yes that is clear. I am aware that ventilation is important, I will add a humidity sensor that controls the ventilation. Bot for sizing purposes I would need a rough rule of thumb how much ventilation per chicken (ft^3/chicken/hour or whatever unit is prefered).

    automated reefer coop questions

    I mean something like that but in a shorter version. The one that does not "sit" on the truck, but is pulled behind? (not sure what the correct english term is, if I search for reefer trailer I only find the long version) It is insulated, so there should not be condensation with normal amount...

    automated reefer coop questions

    Hello, Two things first: I had another thread here, however I feel that the new questions are very different and warrant a new thread. If you see that differently I want to apologize in advance. Second, english is not my native language, so if I make something not clear enough (or use wrong...

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    No, but as mentioned in the OP I do not need temperature, but sound-insulation. But I guess thats two birds with one stone, even if I only wanted the one bird ;)

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    Because the "yard" where the chicken would be does not belong to me. I just have the temporary (min 1 year, most proabably 5-10years) permission to use it. So if the owner wants to use the property for something else I need to move. But it is not a daily or even yearly occurence.

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    If we are talking about aluminium trailers -- would a used refrigerated trailer with an added active ventilation be an option? That would be already insulated, and comparatively cheap used. I know, that has wheels, but that idea just came up...

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    Yes, I am aware. Nevertheless, I do not have a big property, so if I drive it to another location I have to use public roads.

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    driving with something like the picture above even on a small stretch of (public) road. I do not want to move it around all the time, it should just be movable if I have to move to another location for whatever reason.

    movable insulated coop - help with selection

    Ok, should have added that sooner: here that is definately illegal to use here. I would prefer one without the wheels on all the time.
