What is a Chicken Feeder Shelter and Why You Should Build One
I used to leave my chicken feeder inside the coop on rainy days. There were times when it started raining, and I wasn't able to get out to the coop to move the food. Yuck! It ended up being a mess! I had clumps of food that smelled bad and the chickens couldn't get to the dry, clean food. It was a waste of food and a lot of work to clean it up.
I saw a feeder shelter at a local farm store, but it was pretty expensive. It seemed like it was something that could be easily built. I asked my brother for a little help to come up with a design and build something that would solve my problem. Here is what he came up with. This chicken feeder shelter works perfectly to keep the chickens' food protected from the rain and weather. I just pop the feeder underneath the shelter in the morning when I take it out of the coop. If you wanted to hang your feeder, you could easily add a chain to do so.
