    Well I got tired of when the wind blows, it blows the lid off the feeder or the turkey trying to perch on it and knock the lid off. So I had some scrap metal laying around the barn that I welded up, hope this works a little better. Holds around 200 lbs of feed and is a little heavy but wont blow around the farm. What ideas have you come up with that help you?

    We built this for all of the animals. It sits out in the chicken yard. It holds about 400 lbs of feed. We recently added pad locks to both sides so the wind won't blow the top open. Works like a charm. I only fill up the feeder every 2 weeks. The feed NEVER gets wet and there is no waste.
