Babbie’s Chicken Feeder Plans
1 Frisbee– flying saucer the short Lip keeps the food in better than a dinner plate.
1 nut and bolt
1 plastic pretzel jar
1 length of clothes hanger
chain for hanging, I tried lightweight rope and it broke after a short time.
Carefully cut 3 or 4 half moon shapes evenly spaced around the bottom of the pretzel jar where it will rest on the flying saucer.
Using a heated screwdriver or soldering iron melt a small hole the size of the bolt in the middle of the bottom of the plastic jar and the middle of the flying saucer, slip the bolt through and connect the 2nd and bolt together.
Take a piece of metal clothes hanger approximately 12 in.; fold almost in half then fold in the bottom inch. Melt a smaller hole right under the lid of the pretzel jar to insert the clothes hanger don’t forget to thread the clothes hanger through your chain before putting the 2nd side in the jar, then bend the hanger up on the inside to secure the clothes hanger to suspend the feeder .
Thank you, Babbie! Babbie is a subscriber and frequenter of this blog. She occasionally emails me to give moral support and suggestions. I appreciate her willingness to share with others her creative poultry feeder. It looks like a small feeder (but not too small) that will hold a good bit of chicken feed.
