I'm looking to make a rain-proofed feeder on the cheap. I searched and the only ones I found were super expensive 300# units. I'm only feeding 5 birds so that's not the route that I wanna go. However I've had it up to here with the rain!! Due to the rain I have been unable to tar my coop's tin roof so the former-nail holes leak pretty badly (weather is warm so the birds don't mind). I've just been putting out as much feed as they can eat in a day, but it's a PITA if you know what I mean, so I guess I should just make a feeder.
