Stop feeding the sparrows, rats and mice and keep your chicken feed clean 😊
Step on feeders reduce hierarchy in flocks ensuring all birds get enough feed which results in happy hens and better egg production. Step on feeders keep out rats, mice and sparrows ensuring your poultry feed is not contaminated. Clean feed helps to reduce the worm burden. Auto feeders save time and in the long run, less feed is wasted so save money!
Suitable for all commercial hybrids (brown shavers and hylines), heavy breeds and most larger light breeds of poultry plus guinea fowl and ducks. The unit is made out of aluminium with alloy rivets, plated steel hinges, nuts and bolts so it keeps working in adverse weather. We have had no issues with damp or wet feed. They work efficiently both indoors and out. All our step on feeders include our very own Appletons training instructions which are clear and easy to follow.
Dimensions: App. 50cm (width) x 20cm (height) x 48cm (depth).
"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.
A great, sturdy feeder. Exactly what I wanted. The team at Appleton's are great too and happy to give advice.
Pur chooks are really taking some training with feeder...we guess its because they are older birds!!
I love this for my chickens as I know they will never be hungry. They just help themselves when they need it. It didn't take them long to learn to stand on step to open lid.
Feeder working ok so far. Still early days as the chickens are still getting used to it! Good sturdy construction.
yes arrived with in days good service top product hens happy no longer feeding the sparrows which were eating more
