    I am just wondering if the pvc feeders are effective in less waist of feed? Seems like doing searches and all I am finding alot of these in peoples coops. I am looking for a simple way to feed alot of birds in individual pens. Does anyone have any ideas for someone feeding 30 plus roosters and a system to simply feed them all? looking for a belt system or something that drops food in each feeder from one place. Confusing I think but I hope it is enough to get the idea

    You would need an auger system like the commercial barns.

    Sorry I looked but found none. They are real simple but a little spendy you may find a used one with a small silo.

    I wish you were closer to Tx i have a used chore time system....from an old broiler operation...if you could find a house no longer in use they should have a used auto feeder system that would do what your needing....good luck

    Whats a core system? Just wondering because we have a lot of grain productions here where I live. What about the auto feeding system? Conveyer belt or something
