I am researching how to get free feed for my chickens. I constructed my first chicken bed protector and made a video about it. Do you have any improvements or other ideas?

Those are two great ideas for the chicken run.

Geoff's idea mentioned here is great too, but if you're limited to a run you can do a "compost corner".

I wrote about how I cut my chicken bill 100% with such a compost run.

Well if you're talking bringing in free chicken feed I have partnered with a grocery store. We get their throw aways. After Halloween is the best! Pumpkins galore!!!
