Poultry bucket elbow feeder package:
- 90degree lead free PVC elbow
- Rubber Gasket
The ideal hole size is 3.75 inches. Some folks are using a 4-inch hole saw to cut their hole. If you cut a 4-inch hole, you must make sure you center the elbow in that hole! The actual size of the elbow is 95mm which is 3.75″. Very frustrating for us non-metric folks.
The Weather Guard is only really necessary if you are feeding in an uncovered area. It is just a tight friction fit. No glue or screws necessary. If you are feeding inside the coop and have issues with night time visitors to your feeder – remove the Weather Guard if you have it installed – insert the MouseCap when you put your birds to bed. Remove it the morning when you let your birds out.
