behold my new invention. the chicken feeder. i grew tired of wasting food. i tried the standard hanging feeder and it was a disaster. the ladies would peck at the holes to eat the corn and only the corn. i would go through 4-5 lbs of food a day with three large chickens. when the feeder tray would fill up, they would bill it all out until they could see the feeder holes again, and then peck to get the corn. it didn't seem to matter how high i hung the food. gromash, layer rations, chick feed. they always went for the corn in the feed. basically, cut up some aluminum, riveted some aluminum, drilled holes in some aluminum, bent some aluminum bar, and finally took said aluminum and screwed it onto my old chick feeder. one of the best things about the feeder is that it catches all the mess. the ladies then eat that as well. i would like to thank jessica, fluffy lover, and untrusting black-a-roni for demonstrating the chicken feeder. and just in case you still feel short changed by all the photos and boring lengthy explanation, here's a movie proving the effectiveness of my new invention. i'm gonna make a million.
