    I know this is the Coop & Run - Design, Construction, & Maintenance section, but what about a section for DIYers people with ideas on making the stuff instead of buying it in the store, example I seen somewhere someone made a type of heat stand for water out of an old cookie tin and ligt bulb, don't remember where i seen it but maybe if we had a DIY section you could go right there for, I'm also planning on building a composter this week end like one I seen in Lehmans catalog out of two barrels.
    Just an idea, what do yall think.

    I made a PVC pipe feeder for my Blue Orp coop to save floor space, made a waterer defroster from a bucket and a caged work light, built a hexagonal coop from entirely (except roll roofing and paint) recycled materials from one log home build, etc, etc. There was a thread long ago about inventions of BYCers.

    posts like that (DIY) tend to be split up all over the forum...

    DIY waterer heaters are most likely found in "Feeding & Watering your flock"

    I think a DIY section would be nice but you can just use search and find things pretty easily.

    I just looked at that sight its pretty cool. I finished my composter except for a stand and was pretty satisfied, filled it halfway up with chicken poo kitchen scraps and some old potting soil, next weekend i'll add some leaves.
