My favorite of the automatic chicken feeder designs readers have submitted so far is Darren Simmons’ PVC feeder, which is like the second generation of the PVC design I’ve been pointing folks toward.  I’ll let Darren walk you through the construction in his own words. Ware Manufacturing’s Medium Sized Chicken Feeder Trough is the best choice for feeding your flock of chickens. This Chicken Trough is made out of sturdy galvanized steel that is tough enough last the harshest weather conditions. This chicken feeder trough features a wire scratch guard that prevents your chickens from spilling their food. Ware Manufacturing’s Chicken Feeder Trough is perfect for feeding your birds without letting them waste their food. Works with all chicken food types. Measures 15.75″ Width X 5.12″ Depth X 3.94″ Height.
