Has anyone tried trash can feeders??

  1. They are made out of the durable rubbermaid 44 gallon trash cans. They have a special bottom but I cannot find one. Wondering if anyone would have an idea what I can use.

    I have 81 chickens.

    I am working on a watering invention so it stays fresh so bacteria will not grow. I just have to get my wife to let me spend money on a water line.

    Hey Hillbilly, check out my byc page for nipples to possibly use for your line. Just for an idea! Good luck with your feeder-I'd love to see it finished.
     
  3. Thank you so much. That will be helpful in the winter months. In my camper/coop.

    I have started with 5 gallon buckets and new guts to a toliet float system.

    I am also working on a pvc timing mister for the girls during the hot months in there pen. When I get this done I will show it on the page.
