How To Make Poultry Water Systems & Feeders


These are the water systems that are used at Blue Star Ranch. From experience I've learned its best to NOT use the plastic lids. Rather use wire on top in place of lid. the pressure from the sides of the lid may cause the handles to break over time.

Poultry feeders range in all sizes, shapes and materials. The poultry feeder you build is limited to your own imagination. Here are sample photos of a few ideas for poultry feeding automatic systems. If you use these systems be SURE to check often for clogs of food (the food gets stuck from moisture, your chickens will go hungry!) or even stuck small chickens looking for treats. (You maybe can add a screen to the end of pipe to prevent this from happening) its important to keep food free flowing and DRY.

In the photo below, this bucket and pan is a much simpler idea, but very effective for small flocks. You can feed your chickens once a week instead of daily.
