I recently found myself in need of a new feeder setup for my coop (changing to feed that won’t work with old drop bucket setup, and the rooster seems to find those plastic feeders personally offensive), so I figured I could probably cobble something together with various bits of scrap I had lying around.
Not much more to tell, really. It’s mostly luaun and shipping crate plywood (leftover from the garage shelf project), and I did it more or less on the fly in two afternoons. Made a few choices I later changed, and a few I later wished I hadn’t, but nothing substantial. The box sits maybe 22” high, 13” wide and 18” deep (to fit in the spot I have open in the coop). Bottom tray holds feed, top tray holds grit/oyster shell mix.
-- Anyone who wants an excuse can find one. Don't bother telling me yours; I have enough of my own to fight off.
