The assembly process is actually quite easy. The duct is simply placed inside the coop and into the flower pot. Then, as the food is poured into the other end of the duct, it fills the flower pot below. As the chickens eat, more food is released.
One thing the writer mentions is that a lid should be used to cover the outside part of the duct. This will keep animals and moisture out of the food.
