Well, this past weekend I finally built & installed my home brew gravity feeder, built using 4" PVC pipe. Mounted to the outside of the coop. I'm thinking it holds around 10+ pounds of feed, but the biggest plus, is that is filled from outside the coop. No longer having to deal with them rushing the door, cause they know I'm coming Feeder I installed about a month ago, a 55 Gallon rain barrel that drains to a 4 ft 2" pvc pipe with 6 water nipples. That, was an awesome investment! No more poo and straw and clean fresh water for them, every time! Few more things here & there that I want to do... we've got 2 Roos & 16 Hens... all seem to be pretty happy!
