Thanks to this site I have made a PVC feeder with a 4" verticle section (3 ft high) leading into a 3" horizontal. Has anyone added a feature so that you will know the level of feed without opening the top? I thought about 1 inch holes every 6 inches or so, covered with plexiglass, but of course you'd need curved plastic to match the circumference of the PVC pipe.

You can usually tell by the sound of your chickens pecking how far down the feed it. I wouldn't drill it- you'll be inviting insects in there. After a few days you'll know by the sound...
