I used this old rusty chicken feeder (bottom row) to hold some smaller pieces of wedding china and a pretty green candle.
Close up of the feeder in my china hutch. I dont know who Oakes Mfg. Co. is, but gotta love em!
And another view...
Had to put one in the loo! This one holds my deodorant and girly face creams, etc....
Last one! I discovered that this feeder was ideal for holding spices above my stove.

I discovered a super cheap stash of these old rusty chicken feeders at my friendly neighborhood flea market. I immediately knew that these beauts simply HAD to be given a new life. Follow me on a tour of mi casa....

Ya did it! What a bunch of great projects you created with the feeders. My creativity has a major “guy” limit to it and none of your fantastic ideas would have ever entered my thought process. I don’t have any girly creams either. All I got is a can of Foamy and a stick of deodorant. Thanks for sharing your cool ideas and for expanding my vision of chicken feeders. Your photos are great too.

Thanks for a great chicken feeder post!! I have yet to find a feeder myself, here in Ohio, but I'm sure we have chickens somewhere. ;)

Thanks for sharing!
