What do you use to hold the pipe together. Glue, silicon, nothing?
Mine's made out of black ABS pipe because I couldn't find the correct sizes of fittings for PVC pipe to suit my needs.
But they fit together, no glue. The top cap screws into the fitting at the top of the pipe, so if somebody DID want to fly up there and sit on it, no poo would get into the feeder chute.
With a set up like that you don't need glue, the fittings fit tight enough. Looks good!
I guess that would make it easier if you ever needed to clean. Thanks alot.
I'm having a problem with a lot of waste with mine. They tend to peck it out. Any clues on making less waste?
Quote:Mine do the same thing. I have a pie pan under mine to catch most of the spillage. I don't fill the pipe very full, so when they make a mess, I just don't fill the pipe for a day or so and they eat what's on the ground.
So how many birds can this feed? I'm in a jam for space. Build a tractor with detachable run and the coop part is jut a bit too small. I'm looking for a space saving feedfeed (and waterer) for 6 regular size birds.
I have 6 grown birds and 6 three month old chicks. The mess on the ground gets clean up in no time.
