    Quote:not to be rude but i think you could have cut that 2x6 into 3 pieces and made the same kind of feeder.

    also i made about 5 troughs liek that out of wood and u need to build something over them or they stand in it and roost on it , it will be a poop covered mess in about 2 days.

    Hi Cheeze.
    My feeder still holding with no poo in it. I guess I am lucky.

    You can modify your design with another piece of PVC and make it where you can fill from outside the coop! Just put the end piece outside the coop and extend the PVC pipe up about 2-3 feet and add a gutter spout to it. You can fill easily without spillage!
