    Looking for ideas on building our own feeders and waterers for the coop. I have seen a few clever PVC feeders I like, but not too many waterers. Interested in space savers that hold lots of food and water.

    These days my feeder is a dishpan with a brick in it, and my waterer is whatever I can fill with water. I've been through many home made and store bought designs and unless I have chicks, this seems to work just fine for me.

    I have two feeders in most of my coops. One on the wall I built probably holds over a hundred pounds. I keep about 30 lbs in it.[​IMG]

    The little one on the end is for oyster shell. It was all stuff I had except the elbow and cap on the feed tube which costs about $5 at Lowes. It's 5" pvc which holds about 5lbs of food filled to the top. It was the second feeder because the bucket feeder could not entertain all 16 girls at once. My Rooster waits until the vacate to eat. Wish I had another free wall I would put in a second set up and get rid of the bucket.
