Stop feeding the sparrows, rats and mice and keep your chickens feed clean 😊
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. This unit only takes 900 grams to open and holds app. 9 kgs of feed. The body unit is made out of heavy polyethelene (like the wheelie bins) with stainless steel hinges, nuts and bolts so it keeps working in adverse weather. Quality product made here in NZ. This feeder works efficiently both indoors and out but does need to be placed on a level surface. All our step on feeders include our very own Appletons training instructions which are clear and easy to follow.
Dimensions: 520mm x 170mm x 450mm deep including heavy-duty foot treadle.
"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!"
