We built this feeder today and layed out plans for the automatic waterer. DH will run to Lowe's after dinner. We are using a large metal water tank for a holding tank. Is using metal an issue? I will have a little cleanout valve inside the coop on the PVC to add ACV or meds or anything. We also found all of the extra 4x4s and fence posts that we have laying around so that we can start to map out the run. And we started laying out the deck for the coop. And we brought some of the chickens out into a playyard in the grass so they could have their first fun in the sun! Busy day. The girls (3 & 5) are exhausted and so am I!
