10 kg Treadle Feeder.
The feed can only be accessed when the chicken is stood on the tread. This opens the feeder so the hen can reach the food. These are designed to be used outside and prove to be very effective. It may not be suitable for bantams.
Your birds may need some training to use their new feeder.
We suggest that you hold the treadle down with a weight for the first few days until the birds become accustomed to where they can find their food. After this they should be able to use the feeder without any problem.
This feeder requires some basic assembly.
Occasionaly, if the rat problem has existed for some time, the rats may be large enough to operate the treadle when several are stood on it at one time. We suggest that our treadle feeder is used with other methods of rat control to prevent this.

Customer Reviews for: 10 kg Treadle chicken Feeder based on 51 ratings. 51 user reviews. Automatic chicken feeder Works very well . Prevents rats and mice eating or contaminating feed.Slight spillidge I just move it slightly and it's soon gone .easy to assemble and Chickens were using it the same day arfter putting a brick on treadle for three hours Graham Carey - Ipswich Works Well Seems robust and water proof. chickens got used to it fairly quickly but as suggested I propped open with a brick for a few days. Not totally convinced how rat proof it would be as the flap is easily pushed open. Stuart Durrant - Newbury Berkshire That sorted out the Rooks! Good bit of kit which was easy to assemble but watch out for the sharp edges. Took the chickens about a week to get used to it. We had to bribe them with mealworms! I reckon it will have paid for itself in six months. Our local rooks are now very frustrated and hungry! Jon - Devizes I am very pleased with this feeder, just the job. Lisa - Wolverhampton Does what it says on the package... Very clear set-up guide - 5 minutes and ready to go. Main benefits are: Van be left in the run over night and top up is very infrequent. I left it open (with a brick) for a week and my girls mastered the process. Unfortunately they still manage to create quite a lot of spillage for the rats to eat. - Great idea Most of our chickens are using this feeder well, but a bit worried about the Polish who can't really see what she's doing and is used to the old-style feeder. We'll give her head feathers a trim and see what happens. Rats appear to have moved on.... result! Avril - Bath Not pretty but works well Lots of sharp edges so not nice to handle but it is working well. At first there was lots of spilt pellets but once the pellet level dropped in the trough at the front this has not been a problem. Works for both our hens and ducks. Helen - Abingdon 10kg treadle feeder These went together easily, it was not clear from the instructions however and there was no picture about how the waste grill should be fitted, so a certain amount of guess work was needed. These are a gift so I hope they work ok - very pleased,saves alot of feed being spoilt - First class Excellent product - no more rats or starlings! A.
