About a year ago, I was scouring the internet to find a chicken feeder just like this.
I had seen a few online and in magazines and knew I had to have one. Finally one became available on E-Bay and I was the only bidder. The starting price was kinda high and shipping wasn’t cheap, but I still got it for around $30. It was really more than I wanted to pay, however, in months of searching I had only found 1 other one. It was over $40 and in pretty bad shape so I passed. So I bit the bullet and got this one. I currently use it to sort mail and stuff. It’s actually pretty clean right now.
A couple of weeks ago I found this feeder at the same sale I got this shelf from. I’m having a hard time imagining how big the chickens were that ate out of this feeder.
It’s the mother of all chicken feeders. Too big to go inside of my house (though I think it would be a cool towel holder in a big bathroom, or a cool magazine rack).
They actually had a couple of these at the sale. And one of them they had planted with flowers.
Flowers were pretty, but not what I had in mind.
I thought it would be a super cool as a herb garden. I cheated and got most of my herbs already grown (they were only $1.00 at Walmart). I’ve planted dill and stevia on the other side.
Look at the size difference of the 2 feeders. And really the small one is big. The big one is HUGE.
And the best part, I got it for $20. Less than the smaller one.
Don’t you think strawberries would be cute planted in one of these? Hmmm….maybe I should try to pick up another one. 😉
