Hi, Ryan, I'm guessing since you moved to TN you're no longer raising chickens, but I saw this today and thought it was cool:
PVC Chicken Feeders (http://www.budget101.com/showthread.php?t=724561&p=818238#post818238)

Any of you other quilty/farming folks ever do this?

While I haven't used it for chickens (which is brilliant BTW) it's common to use them on this way to put out loose granulated minerals and salts for smaller livestock like sheep and goats.
I've also take a large pvc pipe, cut in half lengthwise, and attached it to the wall as a long skinny feeder for alpacas. They have little mouths, but like to have room at the feeders, so it eliminates bickering over food because you can spread the feed out.

We feed the deer with these feeders. They work very well.
