Appletons Bantam Step On Feeder



Appletons Bantam Step On Feeder

Perfect sized auto feeder for all smaller sized fowl like bantams, Hamburghs, Campines, Lavender Araucanas and pheasant.
We have been so impressed with these Bantam Step On Feeders for feeding our smaller ladies. 😊 The Pekin Bantams took to them quickly (little birds with high IQ's!) and now 15 years on they are still the perfect auto feeder for our smaller breeds. We are saving on feed as the sparrows just don't get the opportunity to help themselves any longer. PLUS we have been using them in our pheasant flights and they have been working well with the ringnecks, ornamental pheasants and our smaller ornamental ducks. 

This unit holds approximately 4kgs of feed.  The unit is made out of aluminum with alloy rivets, plated steel hinges, nuts and bolts so it keeps working in adverse weather. We leave these feeders out in the runs and pheasant flights and they work well to keep the feed dry.

Overall size of feeding unit is 390mm (width) x 160mm (height) x 320mm (depth).

Looks identical to the Appletons Large Step On Feeder but smaller - the photo shows large version. All our step-on feeders come with very clear and easy to follow training instructions. Training is very important and not to be rushed or shortened. Chickens need to be POL and older for training.

Two weeks on, Silkies are still not keen

Well made small unit. I have used a large one for years which the hyline hens are very adept at using. My silkies are proving to be very slow learners but I will persist.

Pheasant step on feeder

Our recent order of 2 pheasant step on feeders are much deeper then the other two which we ordered awhile backwhich could be a problem for partridges . Have you changed the size? Otherwise they are great.


Thanks for good quality supplies
