Plastic Feed trough for chicks 40x7cm
| How to select a suitable chicken feeder.|
You should allow 100-120g of feed per day for each hen. Bantams will need slightly less, large breeds more. Cockerels tend to eat much more than hens.
Our budget range is great as a starting point. They last well but some do have a tendency to crack if you drop them in cold weather.
Our quality plastic poultry feeders are much more robust and should give several years services but like all plastic items left outside the sun will eventually make them brittle and more prone to cracking.
Our galvanised poultry feeders are the most robust option. they're likely to last for many years.
