Description

There is a training period that allows the birds to become accustomed to the operation of the feeder that requires no effort on the part of the chicken-keeper. A sloped back for true gravity feeding ensures there will be no food getting stuck at the back of the feeder going stale. Say goodbye to pesky rats, mice and wild birds as they are too light to weigh down the platform and open the feeder. Grandpa's uses galvanised steel, while many of the imitations are Chinese imports using lightweight aluminium.

Capacity: a standard feeder holds 20 lbs of feed, which services approximately 6 chickens for 10 days.Mice and rats can carry disease-causing organisms on their feet, contaminating ten times the amount of feed they consume with droppings, urine and hair. All other feeders should of course be removed so that the chickens are hungry and more likely to use the feeder. Today they didn't seem at all bothered by the movement and noise, so I decided it would be worth seeing what happened if took it off the training setting.

There's an anti-scratch bar inside, which stops the hens standing in the grain and scratching about, as they like to do. You'll also learn how to position the training bolts so that your chickens will learn how to use their new chicken feeder. I’ve never had an issue with any feed being spoiled by water ingress and man do we have some rain where we live! I knew rats will urinate where they eat and that urine causes Leptospirosis in humans but didn’t know anything further than that. Anti-flick grill: prevents the birds from scooping feed out of the trough onto the dirty ground where coccidiosisand other diseases can contaminate the feed.

While the feeder is in the covered area of the run, it has been accessible to critters who can burrow and fly into the area.

I will have to put something on the pedal come winter time because it gets too cold to expect them to step on cold steel. Well the GF has arrived today (delivered sometime between 5-6pm this evening while I was out walking the dog Never heard of a courier working on a Saturday evening before! The feeder does nicely with this concern, and it helps that I don’t have a lot of critters to protect from. The way the food storage is setup does not allow for gravity to constantly have the opening filled with food.Once the chickens have got used to using the feeder, the bolts can be moved to position 2 which still partially holds the lid open but opens it fully when they step on the treadle plate. Unfortunately, it’s been my experience that I’ve needed to do more maintenance with this feeder than the older one I had.
