    I just recently built this feeder for my chickens. I built this one because my bucket feeder was rusting out. It holds about 35 pounds of feed. I got the idea from Murray Mcmurray. Works like a charm. So I just thought I'd show everyone it. Here are some pictures.

    Well actually the feeder tray that they eat out of is too narrow for them to stand on. And the top of the feeder is like a 35 degree slant. So theres no way they can stand on any of it.

    Um, not really. I mean whenever they want food they go over and peck some then leave.

    Very nice. [​IMG] Is it screwed into the wall, or is there some way that it is removable in case you need to clean it?

    Its screwed into the wall with 4 screws. If I ever want to take it off, which I probably will never need to then I can just unscrew them.
