    How do I go about attaching a metal feeder to the walls of the coop? Use screws through the metal interior?[​IMG]

    i used one of those in my brooder, worked rather well, I would think you could put screws through the metal if you can get a good angle when it is open

    Cant really get an angle :(. Finally had an epiphany and am going to try using the circular screw that comes with latches!

    You could install "eye" screws. The screws w/ eyelets on the end. Then just insert the hook ends of the feeder through the eyelets.
