    I don't have a pic but I have a suet feeder that I put fresh grass in daily. It is hanging and it entertains them. It was really funny cause they acted scared of it at first, but now they love it.

    O.k. i will use this opportunity. [​IMG]

    My husband brought home a shipping crate from work, put it on stilts, and modified it to work as an outdoor brooder. When the chicks move out (which is really soon), we'll be this very very heavy item inside one of the runs so it can act as a brooder/quarantine unit/icu whenever needed. I really like it. Since it's on stilts, it's really easy access to check on my chicks whenever i need to and to get in and clean and whatever i need to do.

    It needs a paint job, but you get the idea.

    My feeders are a 5 foot length of 4 in. PVC pipe with a 90 degree elbow and 4 more inches of pipe at the bottom Cut a hole in the 4 inch section. Fill the bad boy up and put a cap on top... instant feeder.
