The feeder is water proof.
for backyard chickens everywhere
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.
Save Money on Feed
Difficult for pests and birds to feed alongside your feeding chickens.
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
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.
