I bought a 10' piece of gutter and cut it into 3 sections. We attached it to two boards, on either end, and then put a place for the chickens to stand, by putting another board on the other end of the two boards. I drilled some holes in the gutter since its not covered, so it wont hold water. We have two in the run right now, and I use them for their feed and some treats, since I was not liking everything going on the ground. So far, they are working really well! the only thing I will be changing, is I will be adding some blocks under the gutter piece, to raise it up a little bit. The gutter cost me $6, the ends are $2 each. We used scrap wood, so that was free. Nice cheap feeders that the chickens seem to love! I think Im going to try making one of the PVC ones soon!
