    I have been thinking of doing them, too. How big is your PVC pipe?

    [​IMG] Aren't those homemade feeders great? For those of you with bigger flocks and full size hens, you can do the same setup using 4" PVC pipe and the Y-fitting at the bottom. I have 6 Light Brahma pullets, 7 weeks old, on the 3" feeder. Virtually no waste. This photo shows the kids at 4 weeks, so it works well for the little ones, too.
