Back in Our Annual Garage Sale Safari, I told you the story of how I bought a wonderful old chicken feeder.
I have been trying to post a picture of it on this blog and have been unable to do it because my Mac is not compatible with much of Blogger and/or I'm not very compatible with computers. In any event, I think This Link will take you to the picture.
You'll notice that the feeder is all wood except for the vertical dividers where the chickens stick their heads through to feed. Those are a heavy galvanized wire. The thing on top spins around to discourage chickens from roosting. One strip of wood is missing on the spinner but can be easily replaced. Also, the spinner thing lifts right off so feed can be put into the feeder. Being so high off the ground gives chickens room to scratch around underneath.
I'm curious to know if anyone has seen a feeder like this? Do You have any idea how old it is? Was it homemade or bought? Does anyone know of an old or new book that has plans for this classic feeder?
Thanks for your help.
