How many chickens will this feeder feed?

    I'm making a pipe feeder like this one (this is not my pic-it was posted on another thread)


    I think it'll be like the black one, only white. DH bought 3" pvc pipe to make it. So anyway we have 12 chicks and when they get a little bigger we're going to give 6 to a friend, so we'll have 6 left. Will this feeder with about three 2" holes in it, feed that many? Until we give the 6 away I can keep using their old feeder along with this one (the old is a quart type round one).

    Looks good. In a perfect world, I would advise that you use two of them, some distance apart, as chickens can be quite bullish at the feeder. You probably would be fine with only 6 of them, but I would use two feeders myself. [​IMG]
