Make a Feed Trough for Chickens

June 3, 2013


As part of our new chicken coop, my husband made a built-in feed trough for our chickens.  He wanted something that would hold a full bag of food, and that would dispense evenly, unlike our hanging plastic container.

The touch that I like best on it, is how he lifts open the lid: he put two nails on the top, and drilled two matching holes on a piece of wood so the top will simply slide down on the nails and its weight will keep it in place.  This idea is so beautiful in its simplicity.
