Appletons Mini Step On Feeder 6kg

If space is a premium in the chicken coop then this mini feeder is the one for you¬†ūüė䬆The best thing about the Appletons MINI Step On Feeder¬†is that it takes up ONLY half the space of the Appletons Large Step On Feeder and does the same job.

  • This brilliant step-on chicken feeder holds a decent amount of feed - 12kg.
  • Ideal if you have 4 or more hens or only top up your feeder weekly.
  • Perfect if you have a small flock and enjoy going away for an occasional weekend as the chooks will have access to feed 24/7.
  • Hens are foragers and do best eating little and often throughout the day so feed on demand works best.
  • Ideal for busy working people that are not always home early in the morning and late afternoon to feed their hens.

    Step on feeders reduce hierarchy in flocks ensuring all birds get enough feed which results in happy hens and better egg production. Step on feeders keep out rats, mice and sparrows ensuring your poultry feed is not contaminated. Clean feed helps to reduce the worm burden. Auto feeders save time and in the long run, less feed is wasted so save money!

    Suitable for all commercial hybrids (brown shavers and hylines), heavy breeds and most larger light breeds of poultry plus guinea fowl and ducks. The unit is made out of aluminium with alloy rivets, plated steel hinges, nuts and bolts so it keeps working in adverse weather. We have had no issues with damp or wet feed. They work efficiently both indoors and out. All our step on feeders include our very own Appletons training instructions which are clear and easy to follow.

    Dimensions: app. 47cm long x 29cm wide x 22cm high (Height when fully open is 40cm)

    The perfect solution for those that keep 3 to 4 chooks in a mobile chicken coop like the Ultimate Coop on Wheels or the Eglu Cube Chicken Coop.

    "At one stage we were feeding all the neighbourhood sparrows, mice and rats and it was costing us a fortune. When we moved to these step-on feeders (now 16 years ago!) and got the chooks trained to use them our feed bill was considerably reduced and the feed now stays clean and is no longer contaminated with mouse/sparrow droppings. Plus our chook houses are also now free of sparrow droppings and easier to keep clean reducing risk from contamination like salmonella and other diseases carried by the wild birds and rodents. Definitely worth the investment. It will pay for itself in no time!"
