Large DIY Chicken Feeders/Waterers?
Hi all, I'm looking for recommendations and ideas for large homemade chicken feeders and waterers.
Ideally, I'd love a feeder that could hold an entire 50-pound bag of feed but still stay relatively protected from rodents.
And on the waterer front, we do have cold winters here, so I'd love something that held a bunch of water but kept it thawed in winter and also was algae adverse. (I keep my waterers in the coop (long story) so sunlight is not an issue.) Also, in case this information is helpful, my chickens are used to using the nipple waterers....
Can't wait to hear and see what works best for you! (And if your solution is commercially available rather than DIY, that's okay, too. I'd still love to hear about it!)
Thanks so much.
