20 kg treadle poultry feeder
Price: £38.73 (£46.48 Incl. VAT) Quantity:
20 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.
Dimensions : (w) 37cm x (d) 23cm x (h) 66cm
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: 20 kg treadle poultry feeder based on 27 ratings. 27 user reviews. sorry but we found the instructions woefully inadeqaute The photos were indistinguishable i have drilled two holes in either side of the lid so that it can be moved easily HOWEVER after much frustration the feeder is very good and my chickens are happy and content with it - Beware of delivery damage This is the second one I have purchased from wells several years apart and both were delivered damaged. It's poorly packaged and the bottom area gets crushed easily. The first I had discounted and the second wasn't quite so bad so I didn't bother complaining. Only suitable for big hen but works well Martin - Lincolnshire 20 Kg treadle feeder Waited a while to write this review after receiving the feeder as I wanted to see how it worked over the long haul. Like other reviewers I taped up the tipping door to reduce the noise, but this is a very minor criticism. The reduction in waste will pay for this feeder in a very short space of time. Al Blease - Aberdeenshire Delivered on time,chickens soon got used to it and the rats have disappeared a good buy! Jennifer Dinsdale - lancashire excellent goods and service - Does the job Be helpful to know that the assembly instructions are on the internet.Once operational and a little coaxing with corn chickens were feeding in a couple of hours. However I did cushion the flap with thick tape to soften the noise as this frightened them off the treadle initially. Sally Bienias - Cambridge great value This makes life so much easier for us. We can leave our chickens for a few days with very little supervision by the family! More importantly we no longer attract rats. We put a brick on the step for a few hours - that was all it took - to show the hens the feed. Sylvia Smith - Northumberland Fantastic product instuctions a bit small but easy to follow, very simple to put together, keeps vermin out, and chickens well fed. highly recomend this to anyone with poultry. - TREADLE FEEDER very pleased with the product.delivery time was excellent diane easen - southampton Great product Does what it says on the can. Weighted treadle down for first day as suggested and the chickens got the message on day one. The magpies look somewhat disappointed since their source of easy food disappeared!
