Here is a homemade one. Tube is PVC pipe. Used a toilet flange bolted into an old feeder barrel. Hard to see but the feed openings are cut back on the bottom 3" for protection against rain.

You can buy the 3 or 4 way tubes already made and just attach them to your own feeder barrel/legs.

Yep, drop tube was ~$20 from Academy. The rest was home-built on the cheap.

Halfdozen.
How do you keep the feed in the tube from falling out of your feeder. Did you build a way to choke the flow? Did you make a lip on the end? I'm building one like yours and don't know how to do the tube. Also, how long does your pipe stick out of the T?

cut several slits on the bottom of the tube at the feed port...heat gently with a torch and bend it up slightly...doesn't take much and it will stop the feed from flowing
