When we first got chickens over 4 years ago I started looking at chicken feeders in stores and online. I decided to make my own. This was a NO COST feeder because I got the board (it's an old office cubicle divider) for free and my husband had the screws already. It only took my time to come up with a design and decide how big I wanted it to be. I measured and cut the boards myself with a circular saw, then screwed the boards together with a cordless drill. The top is just a board sitting on the top of the feeder. Originally I put the feeder in the coop but it was hard to keep it clean, so as you can see in the pictures it is now sitting outside the coop. This feeder will hold (or close to) 75 lbs of chicken feed. I like pellets because they are not as messy. I'm proud of myself that I did this DIY project myself!!
