|Feeders - How To Make a Chicken Silo|
|Friday, 09 January 2009 23:59|
You may have already come across instructions on how to make your own chicken feeders from PVC pipe. The instructions can be found on many websites around the world. One thing that I noticed immediately with the other PVC pipe feeders is that they are designed for a small number of chickens. That's no problem at all if you only have a small number of chickens to feed because they can all take turns without any problems. Here is my improved variation of the PVC chicken feeder, which I have named the "Chicken Silo". Using different connecting pieces to that shown in other PVC pipe feeders, I have made a feeder which will allow several birds to feed at once.
Here are the instructions and photos ...
The Chicken Silo is L-shaped, I will name the bottom horizontal section the feeder trough and the upright section the chute.
Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions for improvement. ( must be logged in to add a comment to the page )
