This size feeder is ideal if raising a good number of young chickens on to adulthood and need a feeder that holds a good amount of feed. Also perfect for feeding a small flock of hens: 6 to 10. Please note these feeders are not sparrow proof. Best used in hen houses with fully enclosed runs to ensure the sparrows do not deplete the feed supply. Please remember sparrows learn quickly where there is free feed and will access houses and runs through pop-holes and gaps in runs to quickly clean up the feed. Upgrade to a Step On Feeder to avoid wastage and contamination from sparrows, rats and mice.
5kg quality plastic feeder. Made from high-quality UV stabilised plastic for long life. The suspension point incorporates a wing nut adjuster for feed flow. The trough also has segregations to reduce losses from birds flicking feed out sideways. Heavy galvanising on all metal parts. Best hung inside the hen house.
