Chicken feeders are insanely expensive...or maybe I'm just insanely cheap. $30+ for a bucket with holes in it just seemed wrong to me. I made this one from a Home Depot bucket bolted to a 16" plant saucer, for a total cost of about $8. If you look closely you can see openings around the bottom of the bucket (made using my trusty Dremel tool) for the feed to come out of. I left the handle on the bucket so I can hang the feeder if I want to.

DIY Easy Chicken Feeder

This is a great way to re use old plastic food grade buckets to feed your chickens in. You can feed baby chicks out of flat troughs but, once they’re six to eight weeks old, you’ll need an automatic feeder for them. If you were to buy a feeder, a cheaper one could set you back …

1T - Whether you raise poultry for market or maintain a backyard flock, chicken coops are a magnet for rodents. Rodents often appear in the fall, when their external food sources are depleted by harvest. They emerge from the fields, where they live in burrows, to forage and feed around buildings. In contrast, mice will establish colonies within buildings and might never venture outside.

Got a feeder waiting for installation... and got the little red bowl for the water but I'll be putting mine on a food-safe water-barrel.

@ Bruce: I want this!!! Wasted feed drives me NUTS. After much research, contemplating dozens of designs and several iterations of my own, I am now happy with my feeder. There are no longer piles of wasted grain on the floor. Wa-hooo! Mission accomplished. I made my feeder, and you can make one too, for around $12.00 and in about 20 minutes.
