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 6.5lbs of feed and are 20" 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 DIRECTLY TO HARDWARE CLOTH
These feeders simply hook onto the hardware cloth of your coop, making cleaning and filling much easier than hanging feeders. These hooks 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 1" x 1" hardware cloth but if you have smaller openings then simply attach the 2 metal brackets provided with your feeder to the hardware cloth with zip ties or wire. You can then hook your feeder onto these brackets rather than onto the hardware cloth directly.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your feeder to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, 2 aluminum brackets and 4 screws have been provided with your feeder at no extra cost.
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.
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.
LEAD TIME AND SHIPPING
These sets are warehoused in the USA and generally shipped 1-2 days after an order is received. We use either FedEx, UPS or USPS, whichever is the most economical to your area.
