Hello, I am new to this site but is sure is helpfull. We had some chickens when we lived in MT and we used a 6' length of 10" pvc pipe. Then cut out a hole in the side at one end. this we stuck in a 4 inch high rubber grain bucket that was about 12" in diameter. We wired the pipe to the wall for stability. This worked great an would hold 1-2 bags of feed at a time.
