    Large Step On Feeder 12kg | Appletons

    46 reviews

    Our best selling auto feeder! Stop feeding the sparrows, rats and mice and keep your chicken feed clean 😊 Benefits: For chook keepers that keep 4 to 20 hens -however, the feeder will need to be topped up more regularly if you keep more hens. Remember an average laying hen eats app. 130 - 140g of layer pellets a day so the consumption vs when you need to fill it up can be calculated. Suitable for all standard sized birds (brown shavers and hylines), heavy breeds and some of the larger light breeds (leghorns). This brilliant step-on auto chicken feeder has a large capacity and holds approximately 12kg. Hens are foragers and do best eating little and often throughout the day so feed on demand works best. Reduces hierarchy in flocks ensuring all birds get enough feed which results in happy hens and better egg production. Vermin-proof: Keeps out rats, mice and sparrows ensuring your poultry feed is not contaminated. Keeps feed clean and helps to reduce the worm burden. Ideal for busy people that are not always home early in the morning and late afternoon to feed their hens and those of us that go away for weekends. Reduces feed wastage and saves money. Open feeders can lose up to 40% of feed to sparrows and other birds. NZ made - supporting local NZ business The unit is made from aluminium with alloy rivets, plated steel hinges, nuts and bolts so it keeps working in adverse weather. Includes our very own Appletons training instructions which are clear and easy to follow. Training is very important and not to be rushed or shortened. Chickens need to be POL (point of lay) 18+ weeks of age and older for training. Dimensions: App. 51cm (long) x 46cm (wide) x 22cm (height) What Size is Best? The large step on feeder or mini step on feeder?The large size is more suitable for a larger walk-in hen house especially if you plan to position the feeder inside the hen house or outside in the poultry run (protected from the weather) where there is plenty of space. The large step on is twice as wide as the mini and therefore offers more hens the opportunity to feed at once (+ it also holds more food.) The mini 6kg version is perfect for smaller flocks living in movable chicken coops where the footprint of the coop is small and space is a premium. Using two mini step on feeders in a larger flock (instead of one large one) can work well as two feeding stations can dissipate any possible dominance over the feeder by a bossy hen/s and also help when introducing new birds. "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!" Please note this size feeder is not suitable for bantams, we do have the Appletons Bantam Step On Feeder for smaller sized birds. Our Appletons Mini Step On Feeder is identical to our Large Step On Feeder but only half the width - ideal if you have a smaller flock of 3 to 5 standard-sized hens and/or need to fit it in a small run/coop.

  • Feed-o-matic treadle feeder Feed-o-Matic Treadle Feeder

    Feed-o-Matic Treadle Feeder

    63 reviews

    Suitable for all chicken breeds. 4 sizes to suit your requirements: 5kg, 8kg, 12kg and a 20kg capacity Benefits: The unique treadle operation of this feeder will ensure your poultry has all-day access to their favourite feed.   No risk of injury with the unique treadle system which allows your poultry to walk on to the ramp which activates an inwards opening trap door, giving free access to their feed. The operating system is almost silent which will not spook extra timid poultry.  The feeder can be operated by all poultry big and small from the smallest of bantams to the largest of heavy breeds. The adjustable weight of the pedal allows adjustments for birds as little as 250 grams to open, if this is too light, then simply adjust to one of the 5 different settings.  Built from robust heavy gauge galvanised steel and mouse-proof. They will also work well to keep the sparrow and other wild birds out too. Please note trough and treadle are plastic and not rat proof. For best results, we recommend using this feeder undercover and out of the weather.   Useful Info on Training Training takes approximately a week. We recommend not feeding the chooks anywhere else or out of any other feeders whilst in training so they learn to use their new feeder. Try placing a stone on the treadle for the first 3 or 4 days so they learn where the food is, then remove the weight and let them learn to stand on the treadle to expose the feed. They will quickly get the hang of it. To keep the best flow into the feed trough we recommend using a small even-sized pellet in these feeders like the Westons layer pellets. Dry mash due to its powdery consistency will require regular cleaning out to keep the flow moving. Do not use feeds that contains molasses, neither are they good for your hens they also clog the feeder ie : Chook Tucker. Please note the slot at the base of the hopper can be adjusted to regulate the flow of feed. We recommend letting your chooks empty it out regularly so the fine dust that builds up with both pellets and mash can be cleaned out. Dimensions (approximate) :5kg - 260mm wide x 400mm high x 480mm deep - including treadle8kg - 275mm wide x 470mm high x 480mm deep - including treadle12kg - 345mm wide x 495mm high x 480mm deep - including treadle20kg - 345mm wide x 660mm high x 480mm deep - including treadle The two smaller sizes are narrower across the front (26cm and 27.5cm) only allowing 1 hen to feed at a time. The two larger sizes are wider (both 34.5cm) which will allow 1 very large hen or two standard sized hens (brown shavers) to feed at the same time.

  • Automatic Mini Cup Drinker

    Mini Cup Drinker

    10 reviews

    This drinker fits below a bucket or a container with a thick base. We recommend approx. 1 drinker per 2 to 3 chickens. (e.g. a flock of 6 hens will require approx. 2 to 3 lubing cups). The drinker works on a similar principle to nipple drinkers, although is designed for use specifically for poultry and game (not rabbits or mischievous parrots that like to chew). The device requires a low-pressure gravity feed supply via a header tank, drum or bucket. (no greater than 400mm of head). Alternatively, the cups can be attached directly to any container with a reasonably thick base so can be drilled and threaded. The drinker has a tapered thread, so will self tighten as threaded into your container. Tips for training chooks onto nipples  The golden rule for teaching birds to use any type of new watering system like nipples is to remove all other sources of water! As long as they have what they are familiar with they will use it first and will never try something new. If their only choice is to drink from that new shiny metal thingy hanging under the pipe or bucket, it will only take one thirsty bird to try it and show everybody elsewhere to get a drink. So just to be perfectly clear, to teach your birds to use the nipples, remember golden rule...Remove all other sources of water! When installing the new nipple system, simply gather your chooks around and show them by tapping the nipples with your fingers which cause water to leak. That will get their attention and they learn very quickly. We recommend 1-3 chooks per nipple.

Appletons Step On Feeder

Using the correct poultry drinkers and feeders for your flock can save time and money. Automatic chicken feeders that have capacity will allow poultry to ad-lib feed and reduce wastage and contamination. Auto feeders also help to reduce stress within the flock as birds are less likely to show dominance at feeding time as they can eat when they wish. Water feeders with good capacity are the best to invest in as they reduce time spent topping up small ones every day. 

Check out our extensive range of feeders and drinkers - we have everything from self-help feeders and auto drinkers to mini coop cups and nipple drinkers. Read more
