    [​IMG]. I know some people use buckets for many uses for their birds.we have 3 gal square buckets at work that are usually thrown out.if you look in the background I use them with half the lid cut out for nest boxes.I also make homemade feeders and nipple style waterers out of them . They work great and are easy to clean.

    Quote:x2. I make my own scratch from numerous grains and store it in those. I just leave them out beside their regular food container. They are fairly air tight as well.

    Lowes and home depot have them.they hold the by the foot chain. They really work too well for broody silkies, lol. Just the right size for bantams and no need to fix the bucket so it won't roll.[​IMG]
