    I like to scrounge......this feeder ws built out of salvaged "trash", including the hinges. I did break down and buy the screws and glue.....no plans, just cut as I went....... The chickens seem to like it too!

    Excellent! I plan on making my crew something like that in the Spring. I love recycling old stuff and taking parts n pieces to renew them.

    I like it! I might need to get my DH to do something similar when we get the barn done.
