After researching various auto feeding systems I decided to try this one out. It took a few failed attempts but I think this fits the bill. The bucket is mounted at an angle so the feed flows down to the access holes. Mounted 3" off ground. It is fed with 2" PVC with a 3" pouring spout. I figured why not add a window to monitor the feed level. I will be redesigning this when time and funds allow. I would like to increase the window size and move it lower to keep fresher feed closer to the bucket, as well as raise it up to the height of the growing chickens. It keep the feed dry during a recent HEAVY downpour here.
