Simple is best
After watching the chicks use the new simple to make feeder yesterday, I decided to make a couple more of them. The chicks just seemed to take to this simple design.
But I didn’t have any more four inch PVC pipe, but I thought I knew where there was a piece over by my brother’s garden, so I walked over to look for the pipe.
Armstrong Valley Farm
Constructed two more chicken feeders
I found the piece of pipe and was able to make a four foot and a two foot feeder. I cut the bottoms off two more gallon paint cans for the bottom dishes.
Hanging up the feeder
I drilled two holes near the top and put some steel wire in them and hung them from another piece of steel wire that is also used to adjust the feeder height. Since I have chicks the feeders are fairly low to the ground for now. I only installed one of todays feeders in this spot.
I’m still not sure how I feel about the center feeder as it was harder to build and the chicks took longer to figure out how to use it, but they are using it so I will continue to test it out.
Simpler design has some advantages
More van prep
Toward evening I started putting some more stuff in my van and just in general getting it ready to go. Just a bit more to go tomorrow and it will be ready to roll on Monday.
Another nice day.
