    I have six 5 gal. FDA food grade bucket and lids. I am hoping to make 2 feeders for 30 chickens that goats can't get into and maybe a goat feeder also. Also I have a 3 gal waterer but I am hoping to make one for goats.
    Last time I tried this I ruined 2 buckets.

    I really want to get this done by January 9th since I will be out all day for my sisters wedding! [​IMG]

    Thank you!

    anyone? I have seen some great ones on the contest page, but none that are goat proof.

    In order to make it goat proof the chicken feed needs to be kept in a "chickens only area." Goats will do whatever they can to get to the chicken feed...I have two and they are masters at trying every which way to get to the coops....and chicken feed is harmful to goats. That is the only goat proof idea I personally know.

    Could you build a small enclosure for the feeder with the entrance only the size of a pop door so that the chickens can enter but the goats can't? You could build a people door into it for filling the feeder or whatever.
