    Start by doing a quick search in this forum and read about all the ones other people have already built. There are so many to choose from that you couldn't put them all in one topic.

    Check my signature line.... Here's one for about $3 bucks that has ABSOLUTELY no waste!!! All you need is a 5 gallon bucket and a 3" PVC elbow (or Street elbow).

    I guarantee you will never go back to any other kind again!

    This thing holds 25 LBS of food so you don't have to fill it all the time either!!!

    Jimmy did you ever figure out the difference in the street elbow and the standard 90degree elbow?

    Hi LoneOak....

    Yes someone posted very detailed instructions and pictures in my thread about how to make one with one. I'm going to Home Depot tomorrow and purchase one so I can make it in the next couple days........... Of course I really don't need it since I only have 5 chickens..... but I want one made with the "street" anyway!

    Thanks!
