12kg Poultry Treadle Feeder.
The treadle feeder is a perfect way to protect the poultry food from vermin and the weather.
Its unique design keeps the poultry feed safe until the weight of a hen is applied.
Once the bird stands on the feeder, the lid opens allowing the bird to feed.
When the bird steps off the feeder, the lid closes again, protecting the food from rats, mice and wild birds.
This fantastic feature will save lots of money in stolen or wasted food!
The galvanized treadle feeder also has a close fitting lid, complete with a handle for easy filling.
Requires some self-assembly, instructions included, no tools required
New design with robust plastic treadle and hinged hopper lid, much quieter in operation,with a anti-flick grid in the trough plus weight adjustment for treadle and the hopper holds 12kg of feed.
Due to the smart design these treadle feeders are very stable.
There are extensive possibilities to set the weight for guaranteeing the access to the trough.
This depends of course of the animal species to feed.

For animals with a body weight of 500g, for example, the treadle weight should be set to 250g and for animals with a body weight of 5Kg this value should be 2Kg
