Poultry Bucket Feeder – Parts

Now includes rubber sealing gasket and MouseCap!

We’ve created a step-by-step set of images to walk you through the process of building your own feeder with the flanged elbow.

Poultry bucket feeder - drill hole for elblow The bottom edge of the drill bit should be about 1.5 to 2 inches up from the floor of the poultry feeder bucket.

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.

Poultry bucket feeder - mark the holes in the elbow flange The gasket is already in place on the elbow. (updated images coming soon that includes the gasket)

Place the elbow through the hole and make sure the elbow is facing down towards the bottom of the poultry feeder bucket.

Line up the holes in the gasket with the bucket and the elbow

Make sure you are centered in the big hole.

Drill just 2 small pilot holes.

Put screws in the 2 holes and tighten.

Drill the balance of the pilot holes and install the rest of the screws.

Poultry bucket feeder - install Weather Guard 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.

Poultry bucket feeder - install Weather Guard Fill with feed and call your flock over and introduce them to their new poultry feeder.
