The hens won't know themselves with such flash accommodation.
My chickens are ok with the toy after the bravest one had a go at it.
However the sparrows try to get their beaks in to. Some hover like hummingbirds. Had hoped they would give this a miss, as I bought it to replace the snack balls my chickens liked and which the sparrows too were able to operate.
Also wonder why the manufacturer put holes in the top of the toy; rains het in and wets the seed snack. Very disappointing.
Wouldn’t buy another one . More work for me; no manic fun for the chickens.
The cover arrived in no time at all. So easy to put up. Perfect for our needs.
This certainly kills the mites, great treatment for the mites
Love this drinker. No parts too loose and easy to fill. Should have got one ages ago!
Bought 2 as gifts as I was always getting comments on my own. Awesome service as always. And I even got a rebate on the freight. Fantastic company. Thank you Appletons'.
Have bought 2 of these, sturdy and easy to make the kit for the chooks
Outstanding product and service! My Chickens love it! Super easy to assemble, delivered to the door! Recommend 100%!
When our previously clucky hen wouldnt sit on the eggs anymore, this little beauty came along and saved the day. Looking forward to using it again to raise more chicks
I've never regretted running a small mdomestic flock of layers. And now with shortages and dramatic change in the commercial sector, it's even better. But I've always been a bit worried that I might be using last week's eggs last. I even wrote notes on them sometimes. That's over with the skelter. And the bench-top footprint is not much more than a carton.
We are very happy with the new hen house. Excellent service from Appletons and it was very easy to assemble and is very well made.
Love the convenience of this!
Good quality product that arrived quickly after a minor delay with needing to pay an extra few dollars for delivery to my semi rural address
Easy to operate. Good instructions. Great results and would recommend.
Amazing fast shipping
I purchased this as my hens got the taste of the eggs. So far working well. They only took two days to get used to the new box, so I was impressed. There have been a couple of time when they haven't rolled away quickly enough to the hen got to her egg. The box and mat were very easy to clean. But I am getting more eggs. When I discover the main culprit, she may not be long in this world! Very sad.
Great service and product. Very pleased. Prompt service and replied to my email query.
Hay looked and smelt delicious and the rabbits enjoyed it.
Great hutch, and very simple to put together…..if you read all the instruction books for the extensions etc before starting. If you don’t you’ll be like me and take the last few steps apart several times during the build 😅
Well made, good solid chook house. Chooks took to it straight away. They didn’t even need any help with the ramp..
Buying the wheels and handles for the eglu has changed our lives. It is now so easy to move the coop and pen we wonder how we coped without them. We fitted them so quickly and easily and are amazed at the difference they have made. Appletons have once again impressed us with their service.
We only have a few completely free range chooks and they have taken quite a while (months) to get used to standing on the ledge and being ok with the lid flipping up. We still have one chicken that won't stand on it so she waits for her friend to come along and stand on it for her but we are hoping she will eventually stand on it in time. Overall, once the chickens do use it, it is brilliant as like others have said we are no longer feeding all the sparrows in the country side and therefore are not going through as much feed.
I have very big young hens so worming is important and this product is so easy to use. Natural because it doesn't affect the eggs. Since treating my hens have been laying bigger and more eggs.Not sure if its the worming treatment, but I have never seen such large hen eggs in my long life. I will be definitely using it regularly.
Fresh dry straw for bedding, which our bunny appreciates :)
Have been using for a week now. We are still getting soft shell lays from one of our chooks but will persevere.
Quick delivery and well packaged would use Appleton’s again
