    That's really clever! Did you write the person who posted the video on You Tube to inquire about it?

    Gah! This is frustrating me! I know that I have seen the plans for that somewhere online when I was looking for feeder plans...and I cannot find then now!


    Edited to say: here it is: https://www.backyardchickens.com/LC-feeders.html
    Although
    it does say specifically that there are no plans, there are some nice close-ups.

    There was a guy on here that built a great one. He made it like a hog feeder. It had this shape ^ at the bottom covered with something slippery with a wooden box around it. Hinged top on both sides to add feed. I think he said if held 50 lbs of feed and it had 2 sides the hens could eat from.
