This Instructable will explain how to build a durable, inexpensive chicken feeder from PVC pipe and a 5 gallon bucket. You can use this feeder from chicks to full size birds. The vertical feeder keeps cleaner and has a greater capacity than the horizontal feeders. I have used this style for years and it works well for me.
30 inch length of 6 inch PVC Pipe
Plastic 5 gallon bucket
Electric drill, bits and step drill bit
Sheet Metal Pliars
Small nuts and bolts (10-32 x 1/2" is what I used)
10 inches of small chain
2- 1/4" bolts 1 inch long with washers
