A simple, inexpensive way to feed the chicks and minimize waste!
Step 1: Parts Needed!
For this project, we found everything at Lowe's. We opted for PVC drain pipe rather than the schedule 40 (standard) PVC pipe & other pieces due to length of the curve at the bottom when completed & cost of pieces. Here's the supply list:
10' piece of 3inch PVC drain pipe
4 - 3inch 90 degree street elbows
4 - 3inch 45 degree elbows
4 - 3inch threaded caps
4 - 3inch cap adapters
screws with rubber washers (length doesn't matter tremendously)
metal pipe strap
2 - 3inch PVC pipe caps (standard, not drain caps) This is for the update given later.
