    Here you are. Cost me $12 for 2 of them. I highly reccomend you make them short enough you don't have to raise the feed bag above your head to fill them [​IMG]

    I used 3" pipe to make this. I wish I had used 4". Eventually I'll redo it, but it works great. The extra cut peices I have sapped over the top keep the girls from scratching it all out.
