Kid warmer: A 55 gallon FOOD GRADE plastic barrel. Cut a hole the diameter of a heat lamp in the top lid leaving enough to run 4 screws through the rim of the metal lampshade into the top of the barrel. Be sure the bulb won't be touching the plastic.
Great homemade PVC pipe feeder for the chicken coop! Food funnels in from both ends. This gives me an idea that this might work for feeding songbirds . just make holes smaller and/or use smaller pvc pipes.
