    We could all spend an arm and a couple of legs on chicken "supplies" like feeders, waterers, and such.

    What have you made to take care of your chicken besides your coop?

    The feeder is a gravity feed holds about 75 lbs of feed, used to be a onion/potatoe bin that I got at an auction for couple bucks. The other two bins hold oyster shell and grit.

    I don't have a picture of my homemade feeder, but I used a 3 lb. coffee tin and a standard cake pan (Dollar store) 3 2 in. elbow brackets, and small carraige bolts. I'l try to post a picture of it in the AM. It was super simple and it is easy to fill since it take one can of feed. Plus it doesn't sit with tons of food in it for long periods so it stays cleaner.
