The pellets are stored in the hooper part of the feeder and flow into the feed tray.

All feeders come with an inbuilt

Feed Tray Restrictor

The feed tray has a built in restrictor insert which means that feed tray fills up to only a third. We designed it like this as it eliminates the overflow of feed and ensures feed in tray is not flicked out easily.




Add to your Feeder the 

Anti Scratch Grate Insert

We noted that the habit of flicking or attempting to scratch increases if feeding mixed grains as they search for their favourite grains.

You can add an anti-scratch grate to reduce feed loss through this pick-and-flick activity.

Not usually required if feeding pellets.

AWOL  chooks leads to outside the box thinking!

Save Money on Feed

Difficult for pests and birds to feed alongside your feeding chickens.

Premium Quality

We are confident that our the chicken feeder will give many, many years (or generations of Chickens) of service.

the chicken feeder is owned by chicken lovers from way back who believe in simple sustainable living.

Easy to Train

Allow the tray to remain open whilst the chooks become familiar with the treadle about 5 – 10 days- teach one and others will follow.

Once the chooks are feeding easily from it, just take it out of 'training mode'

The Chicken Drinker

As a partner to the chicken feeder, ensure your chooks always have clean fresh water with our great new chook drinker.

  • Provides your chickens with clean water (approx. 4 litres) that doesn’t evaporate, spill everywhere or soil easily

  • Clean and simple design

  • Easily mounted off the ground

  • 50cm tall

Our new drinkers overcome the problems of evaporation, spillage and soiled water.


These drinkers incorporate a professional valve-operated drinker cup (used by poultry experts) that only allow a small amount of water in the red cup at any one time.

When the chickens drink from the red cup and the water level goes down, the valve automatically replenishes the cup.

With traditional drinkers, we regularly had to change the water as the chickens had scratched dirt into the drinker.

Like us, chickens need a fresh supply of clean water.

        The chicken drinker:

  • Are UV resistant – won’t heat up like metal containers or degrade easily like other plastic ones on the market

  • Use rear hooks – these drinkers simply hook onto the mesh of your chook run making cleaning and filling much easier than hanging drinkers.

  • Are Slimline, compact design – a big advantage is that these drinkers take up very little room.

Customers' reviews

Thanks so much, it is going to make life a lot less wasteful. It is also lovely to buy something manufactured locally
It’s wonderful. The chookies got used to it very quickly and the feed is safe from the rats, which don’t even bother to enter the shed anymore. No more yucky ratty piddle and poo either. I no longer need a bin to store the bag of feed in as it fits neatly into the chicken feeder which of course the rats can’t chew through and means more room in the shed
We are very impressed with the design which appears to be very refined, and also with the workmanship which is very professional
