    I want a metal one, but the only places I have found are in UK and shipping is crazy. I have been googleing and looking at old post but have not found to much.

    I think it's Grandpa's chicken feeder or something like that that sells them? I've seen them advertised in US magazines, so I'd think they are sold here. We made one out of wood and painted it for durability. We used all scrap materials, so our only cost was $8 for the sex-bolts and it came together pretty easy once we got started on it. I'll never buy another kind of feeder again! [​IMG]

    I found this one and have used it already and it does what it says it will do.
    If rats are a problem for you this is a rat proof feeder and can feed up to 80 birds per day with one load of feed. If you have only a few birds the feed will last a long time, 4 birds can feed for up to 20 days.

    They are located in Oklahoma City, OK
