Chicken Feeder & Drinker Set - with Single Cup
This set includes:
- 1 x 4 litre drinker (approx 50cm tall) with a single cup and rear hooks
- 1 x 3kg feeder (approx 50cm tall) with rain cover and rear hooks
- 2 x ergonomically designed lids
Our 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 drinkers holds approximately 4 litres of water and are 50cm tall.
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 drinker and feeder set 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 and drinkers 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 drinkers and feeders simply hook onto the mesh of your coop, making cleaning and filling much easier than hanging drinkers. 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 4 specially designed 'solid wall brackets' with wire or zip ties. Then your set can hook onto these brackets rather than the mesh directly.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your set to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, aluminium '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 drinkers and 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 drinkers and feeders. They are ideal for chicks as they can't accidentally drown like they can in larger water containers. Just ensure you hang the feeder and drinker low enough for the chicks to reach. The cups are valve operated so they automatically replenish when the water level goes down meaning the chicks don't need to peck on the floats for the cups to work.
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.
