    I am looking for feeders and water bowls for my coop that don"t cost much!

    I kind of have a tight budget!

    Where can I get some!

    Most people just make their own. There are great videos on youtube that show you how to make feeders and waterers out of five gallon buckets. I've seen the ones at the feed store, and they can get pretty expensive, around $20 to $25. It only costs maybe $5 or $6 to make your own, and its actually pretty easy.

    I use those "little giant" black rubber pans for feed and you can use them for water. They are very cheap....like $5 dollars at any feed store. You can even get them at Walmart as well. They do not crack or break, they don't tip over easily and will cause less waste in feed. Water also thaws out quick in the winter when put in a sun beam.

    Here is what the look like. They come in assorted sizes...
