I built this chicken feeder a few years ago and it has held up very well. In the next few photos you will see how I built it. It’s very simple and easy, and can be built very cheap!


For the main part I used a section of 4 inch schedule 40 PVC pipe that I had lying around. As you can see in the photo, the hanger at the top is made out of pipe strap.

For the bottom of the feeder I used an old dog food bowl that we no longer needed.

and again used pipe strap and screws to hold it in place.

The feeder self feeds. It works best to fill it with a narrow feed scoop. Let me know what you think!

Once again, I’ve saved myself a bunch o’ “green”.

Even you can build your own chicken feeder!
