    Glad you liked one of my little projects. That was one of my cheapest feeders I have built an they work great.

    The feeders an wateriers I am playing with now are just the regular mason jar type. But if you take a small plastic peanut butter jar an cut the bottom out of it, then stuff it up in to a peace off 3 inch pvc pipe an glue it you can make a "jar" as big as you want. I think my feeder an waterier are about 3 feet long. Just what will fit in my freezer/brooder an the top still close. You can see the feeder in my brooder cam. The waterier is to the right of what the camera can see.
