is that feeders in the pic worth $40 dollars each
Certainly not to me. But to each his own.
I have bought the plastic feeders mostly and paid not more than $20 for the very large ones holding about 15 lbs of food, which is all I would put out in a day anyhow in each coop, run or tractor.
I have one metal feeder in the main egg laying coop and I still only fill it with 15 lbs of food every other day and it will hold 30 lbs. I paid $26 for it several years ago but dislike it so much I went to plastic.
I have to tell at a glance from the outside of the pen or tractor how much they have left. I prefer not to let it get moldy in the summer and with afternoon showers and high humidity it does.
I know! Way more info than you asked for!
Not at all you can build those for 10 bucks. but i would reccomend that you make one out of 3 our 4in pvc they dont waste as much since they cant scratch it out here are pictures of mine.
ok thank you
This looks great. How big are the holes? How did you attach it? This has me thinking...
