    I've never heard of a 5" elbow, but Lowes does carry a 6" 90 degree street elbow for about $26.

    I like that a lot. We get extreme heat here during summer for long periods of time, so I think a two gallon feeder would be better, but I've sure wrestled with that decision. The 50 pound feed bag isn't that big.

    It's kind of a shame having to split the feed into two locations: one for the coop and the rest for storage. Would a double layer of tubs help? I've also contemplated nesting the tub inside a wood box, with the PVC feeders passing through both the wood and the tub.

    To use in a small shed a taller narrow tub would be best.
