We regularly had customers asking us how to prevent a range of problems they were experiencing with their traditional style drinkers and feeders (and to be honest, we had the same problem with our chickens)... So we decided to design and manufacture our own sets! We soon had duck owners wanting a set for their ducks as well as their chickens, so now we offer this version with just one divider in the tray to allow for ducks' wider beaks.
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. For the duck feeder, we remove two of these dividers, just leaving the central divider for ducks with wider beaks. 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 ducks! 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 HARDWARE CLOTH
These drinkers and feeders simply hook onto the hardware cloth 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 1" x 1" hardware cloth of your coop. If your holes are smaller, simply attach the 2 aluminum brackets supplied with your feeder to your hardware cloth with some wire or zip ties and then your feeder can hook onto these brackets rather than directly onto your hardware cloth.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your set to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, 2 aluminum brackets and 4 screws have been provided at no extra cost.
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.
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.
