    That is very cool! My husband made me one of the other pvc feeders with the angles, but the cuts on this seem simpler I think even I could do it myself! I am going to keep this in mind for the near future!

    they sure are simple, the last ones that I made didn't even have the notch, I just lifted the pipe up a little

    jeb 251- Wonderful idea.
    thats on my
    to-do list this week.
    I have left over pvc.

    Will pvc hold up under a heat lamp?
    and not freeze up in the cold months
    for water in larger pipe size.with the fill part coming
    out the side of the coop, then they could
    be filled from the out side.
    1watertube and1 feed tube.
    plastic waterers freeze up mighty quick.

    Hi Just Finished A Pvc Feeder.however I Used A 4'' Pipe W/ A 2'' Reducer.it Fits Ok In The Chick Red Feeder. But Because Of The Ports,i Needed To Put It About A Foot Out From The Wall. I Like Yours Better.it Allows The Pipe To Fit Against The Wall.better Idea.think I'll Redo It Like Yours,just Need To Notch It And Remove The Reducer.and Get A Larger Cap For The Bowl.thanks For The Good Idea. Jim
