wanted: have: large chicken feeders / pickup only, central pa

This would be a pickup only, so if you're not willing to come to the Harrisburg area, please save yourself the time and skip this message!

I have some metal chicken feed troughs on wooden stands in my barn loft. They are large, ugly, old, and practically inaccessible, stuffed behind a lot of junk. I have no motivation to get them out of there unless someone wants to trade something for them. I do not know how to post pictures on the forum but I could email a photo or more specific measurements if anyone is interested. I believe there is potential (besides feeding chickens!) for these to become interesting planters.

I am interested in swapping for bamboo poles (not plants) or any long (6' or longer), thin (3-4") tree trunk / sapling pieces I could use to build arbors. I also need plastic gallon pots, garden tools, boulders, bricks, stones suitable for wallbuilding, exterior paint in bright jewel-tone colors (not neon shades) or (possibly) architectural salvage items. If you have any other weird old stuff, I could be interested.

Anyone who wants any of these trough feeders (there's several) has to be willing to help get them out of the loft! There's stairs; it's just going to be awkward.

Duh. It should read HAVE. I could swear I didn't type the word WANTED, but there it is. Sigh.

Katie, just an idea, but if you still have them and there the big trough type they do make interesting planters for flowers in the spring time. I have some and there great that way.
