    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![​IMG]

    This looks great. How big are the holes? How did you attach it? This has me thinking...
    Thanks!
