D.I.Y. Chicken Feeder

D.I.Y. Chicken Feeder

In this blog I hope to show you an inexpensive easy way to make your own chicken feeder right at home!

- A 2 Gallon bucket (with lid)
- A 5 Gallon bucket
- A Saw
- A Razor knife

Time Required: 10 Minutes

Step 1: Using the saw cut the 5 gallon bucket all the way around so there is about 3 or 4 inches left from the bottom of the bucket. (As seen in picture)

Step 2: Using your razor knife cut four slots evenly spaced near the bottom of the 2 gallon bucket. (as seen in picture)

Step 3: Assemble by placing the 2 gallon bucket inside the cut 5 gallon bucket and fill with feed and watch the chickens go crazy! (The lid for the 2 gallon bucket keeps the chickens out of the feed bucket)

Step 4: (optional) Drill a hole in the bottom of the 2 gallon and 5 gallon buckets and secure them together with a nut and bolt.
