Our feeders overcome the common problem of feed wastage. We used to have so much grain wasted by chickens who would scratch all their feed onto the ground in search of the tastiest piece of grain! This is a very common thing for chickens to do. The uniquely designed tray that forms part of this feeder, has special divisions which discourages the chickens from 'swiping' the grain from the feed tray and onto the ground. Many dollars are saved using this type of feeder. The feeders hold approximately 3kg of feed and are 50cm tall.
This feeder comes complete with a rain cover for your feeder, to keep your feed clean and dry in any type of weather. The added benefit of the rain cover is that it helps to prevent wild birds such as sparrows and pigeons as well as possums, squirrels and rodents from eating from your feeder. No one wants to feed all the local wildlife when they're trying to just feed their chickens! Many dollars are saved using these feeders.
These feeders won't heat up like metal containers or degrade easily like other plastic ones on the market. We've had customers who have been using the same drinker and feeder set for 10 years!
HOOKS FOR MESH
These feeders simply hook onto the mesh of your coop, making cleaning and filling much easier than hanging feeders. These are made from Nylon plastic so are very strong with replacements available if they do manage to break. The hooks are designed to hook onto 25mm x 25mm mesh but if you have smaller mesh, rather than cutting the mesh you can attach 2 specially designed 'solid wall brackets' with wire or zip ties. Then your feeder can hook onto these brackets rather than the mesh directly.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your feeder to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, aluminum 'solid wall brackets' can be purchased with your set for easy installation.
Most feed types work well in Royal Rooster's gravity style feeder such as pellets and grain mixes. Some finer grain mixes are unsuitable to use in these feeders in damp weather, as moisture is absorbed into the feed which affects the flow of the grain into the tray. Red Hen and Crumbles are not recommended feeds for a gravity feeder.
SLIMLINE, COMPACT DESIGN
A big advantage is that these feeders take up VERY little room in your coop. If you have a smaller coop, maximizing space is a key concern.
FOR CHICKENS OF ALL AGES
As soon as your chicks have hatched, they can use these feeders. Just ensure you hang the feeder low enough for the chicks to reach.
Royal Rooster's feeders and drinkers are made in Australia using a combination of local and imported materials. The drinker cups are professional 'lubing' cups made in Germany.
