    I am building an outdoor aviary for wood ducks, quail, pheasants and have been wondering what to use a feeder so it doesnt get ruined whenever it rains.... I have been unable to find anything other than chicken feeders with covers and I really do not like the looks of those... Any ideas guys?

    I would think even those with attached covers would let food get wet with rain.

    What about making a table to sit whatever feeder you like under it so it keeps it dry?

    I was thinking about the table Idea... Or attaching a wood plate to the wall above the food. I have also thought about hollowing out a log and hiding the food under their.

    Any of those should work. I would pick whichever one you already have the supplies for. Please post pic when you decide and get it done.
