terryyouth: if you would have fitted that pipe from outside, you didnt even have to
open the cage to put feed in. maybe need a loop of plastic or thin rope at
the bend to stop rainwater running inside. What say ?
1994abbygirl: My concern is that it the food won't keep feeding itself down into the
Liam starr: Coooooooool
Yasmin Silva: Thank you so much!
This is a great hobby you have.
Green Power Farm: well thanks!!
lou pelez: Dont watch this guy he shocks cats for fun boooooo
rm0234: cool. i like to teach chickens to respond to their name.
bob billy: awsome videos
Neeraj Lohchab: put a finer mesh to keep rats out?
Praxxus55712: I just love watching you invent things Rick. You're like McGyver on a
Green Power Farm: @RocketCityGardener that would be the right tool to use.
Green Power Farm: Thank you brother for saying that..I am trying to keep it realistic and
practical in this world....
Green Power Farm: I have an americana rooster that comes running when I call him...hes cool.
Mike Fas: seems like they can jump on it and poop in/on it. good idea but i would lay
it flat against the wall instead of sticking out in the middle like
Soullessbastard: this is one of the most realistic videos ive ever seen lol you remind me of
some of the people i hang out with great video man
Hamish Gale: Ok so I made one just like this. The chickens can only get their head in
the hole. Filled it up. Came home and all of the feed is on the floor.
Seems it just flows down the pipe and straight out the holes. Yes the
holes. We're above the centre line of the pipe. Not happy with all that
wasted feed. Any ideas? I think it needs a baffle inside the 90 degree pipe
to stop this.
Jim Marx: I'm building one of these! How old should the chickens be (approx.) to use
one of these? Mine are almost 4 weeks old and I'm sick of them throwing the
food all over the brooder, so now I have it in a cookie tin and they have
to jump inside to eat. Works pretty well since if they scratch they can't
throw the food, but I want them to get use to the type of feeder like you
have in this video.
rm0234: Hello. I like chickens
Wrigley Bynum: You crack me up;)
Green Power Farm: yeah...I have also noticed the rats tunnel into the coops with these
feeders on the ground like this...I guess its more work to get into the
store purchased ones off the ground and all....I wanted more of a space
saver in my coop...this does work but there has got to be a better way...:)
getsmartnow2011: Hey Rick, I Always enjoy your videos :) I'm definately going to give this
feeder a try. Thanks for all the great videos. " I didn't measure and I
would suggest you don't either" LOLOLOL LOVE IT!!!!!! You always teach me
something, and make me laugh at the same time. :)
donnagw: I love your ideas and your brave heart. lol
Brandon Calabrese: Watch: Clubbing baby seals with ginger baby :)
rhey simon: like a boss!
Jim Marx: Please don't say that. I have all the materials to make one and I love the
concept. Did the mess occur because of the chickens or the rats? Looks like
you have it nice and solid to the coop so it shouldn't move from the
chickens. I need some idea other than the bell shaped feeders that can be
purchased because all they do is kick all the food out of them and waste
it. I need some design with very little waste. Help! what are you using now?
Green Power Farm: @AndysGreenhouse its been a while and still works right..just dont glue
it...its easy to clean when you can take it apart. thanks!
Green Power Farm: i did ..and they made a tunnel right under the coop...then I pluged the
holes...then they made many holes...then I used M-80's in the holes..&
didn't kill one...then I gave up & poured concreate all the way around &
they dug under the concreate..lol
Green Power Farm: I gettin em man!
Green Power Farm: well this design turned out bad...it made alot of waste of feed & made it
real easy for rats to have plenty of food...don't make one like I
did...make the 5 gallon bucket kind with the oil pan bolted to the bottom.
Shameem Ahmed: genious, many many thanks for shareing
rhey simon: @london1817 link me to the video. If you may.
DrBird735: To save space, try a simple verticle tube of the same size with a angled
plate baffle to keep the feed from running out. You see these with songbird
outofworkbum: "I cut it twice and it's still too short" (best 3 stoogers line ever)
Sergio Cruz: Sweet thnxs. im new w/ the chicken stuff haha. this really helps.
Green Power Farm: it works great still!
Andys Greenhouses: good video....im def. gonna make me one of those....
Jesstool: speak up man.. wicked video but i couldnt hear the first part over the
FarmScape Goods: Ok, this might solve my problem. Thanks for the vid.
Hamish Gale: Hey i fixed my feeder. Video on my channel.
kschroe1816: I would like to find a similar plan for a smaller feeder for a smaller
coop. I bet some chickens would still sit on this thing and poop in it. :-)
Your videos are very helpful. Thanks!
Green Power Farm: @echo1er Thanks!
Green Power Farm: well, don't build this one...they made a giant mess with the feed & the
feeder made my farm a rat farm for a little while....I had to shoot them
all at night (for months) with the night vision and a pellet gun...it would
have been better if you could close this feeder at night.

spazcreationscom: dude your very funny, seem really cool, plus good video thanks.
Jean Botts: Great shop...great idea thanks
Green Power Farm: It would be...and some kind of cover over the feed at night...the rats
loved this feeder.
Brian Bandura: Cool man, be cool to add some kinda valve, to keep the tube full and just
open to dump
JRSKICK1: great job...good idea
Paulina P: your hilarious... so honest and a pleasure to watch... thanks for the tip,
I'll be working on my coop this weekend, I'll keep your idea in mind...
THANK YOU :)
