For this, get a five-gallon feed containing bin, rather than a bucket, and valves that can be installed on the bottom. The bin should be able to hold up to 50 pounds of feed so it doesn’t have to be replaced a lot. Get a small wheeled platform so the feeder can be moved around wherever. Get a saw and some super glue to keep things in place.

The no-spill feeder has three-inch valves that needs to be placed at the bottom of the container. Get six of them and place two on each side, each being 0.5 inches from below. Trace the circles and saw it out carefully and directly without encroaching the other lines for the other circles. Get something to smooth the corners and cuts on the inside to make it more easier to install the valves. Use the superglue to stick the middle point where the valve will sit on the bottom. Each valve should be an elbow, as if they were turning in, so the feed can easily go out and out for the chicken to peck out of. If it gets stuck, take a stick and loosen the bottom to keep the flow.
