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.
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
This is the second purchase from Appletons and it is a quality product.
they switched onto the feeder pretty quick, really good.
It arrived promptly and a bonus was it came pre-assembled, so saved me that task.
Excellent service. Well crafted feeder, I can see that it will last for a long time. Really good clear instructions,even the pegs provided to hold up the lid while my guys get used to it, now that's service!My bantams seem to be getting the hang of it really fast. Thanks a lot.
It took my smartest hen only a week or two to jump onto the step then almost jump into the box as she is a small bantam but the big black bantam cross was quite suspicious. Probably the noise put her off. But now, 7 weeks later she places one claw, yes only one, on the step and as she’s tall leans in and east’s once smartie small bantam has gone! They are so funny and I’m relieved they can use this Sutton Feeder from Christchurch which Appleton’s in Nelson sent me
Bantams got used to eating from it within 2 weeks.While I kept the lid open with pegs to begin, I put some cardboard on the sides to ‘force’ them to feed from the front.I’m saving money and the feed stays dry during any rain - great value for money!
Prompt delivery and communication - thank you. Product arrived well packaged with clear instructions.
