HOW TO make an automated Chickenfeeder | Make:
Nice HOW TO, would work for other little creatures too - I know there are many feeding systems available in the pet shop but I don't want them to have access to the specialised food the whole day. Exposing them to an unlimited supply of grains, corn, ... would stop them from eating my kitchen waste (and that's why we bought them in the first place). Link.
