    I wracked my brain trying to figure out a good feeder that would work for me and my situation. I wanted some feeders I could hang on a fence. Here's what I came up for...what do you think??

    One 10 ft piece of plastic rain gutter / cut into 2 - 5 ft sections. - add end caps.

    Drill 1/16th drain holes in the bottom
    Screw onto a 5ft section of pressure treated wood and attached "j" hooks as hangers.

    Instant feeder!!

    Looks like a good idea. We need to come up with something too. Like yours!
