OK-- I am sure there is a thread or two like this out there, but I am CONSTANTLY learning something new, or being taught a lesson by my chickens. So here are yesterday's epiphanies: A- It is a bad idea to chew gum when I am cleaning the coop. It is dusty in there, and I apparently chew with my mouth open. B- When designing a PVC pipe auto feeder, do not make the feed intake too high. I am 6'1" in heels, but the feed bags are heavy, and I am a wuss. If it is too high, I will have to lift the bag over my head, balance it on top of my head, steady the bag with one hand, aim the pouring feed with the other, and then raise up on tippy-toes to intiate the tipping of the bag. Plus, it is highly unlikely I will be in the coop with kitty heels on. Anyone else learn something today?
