Extra large metal treadle feeder, holding approximately 35kg (40 litres) of feed.
3 to 4 large hens can forage from this treadle feeder at one time.
Two weight settings can be used, bantam and light birds or heavier large fowl.
The shutter opens from 800g or more in large fowl mode.
The shutter of the feeder opens as soon as the chicken or other fowl steps on the treadle.
Vermin like rats and mice are too light, so the shutter stays closed for them, and the feed stays out of reach.
Our treadle feeders can be set in two different positions:
The heavy position, for large fowl like chickens, ducks or geese, and the light position, enabling bantams and pheasants to open the shutter.
Treadle feeders are perfect for outside use.
Due to the enclosed space where the feed is contained, neither rain nor sunlight can contaminated the feed.
This allows you to feed the birds for several days at a time.
Made from 1 mm galvanised steel, the shutter has a 2 mm thickness, ensuring durability and a long lifetime.
Due to the smart design these treadle feeders are very stable .
The full metal treadle prevents dirt accumulating underneath it, unlike feeders that use the cheaper mesh wire treadle.
The raised sides of the treadle provide it with extra rigidity, so it won't bend even if several heavy birds stand on it at the same time.
40 litre capacity.
THIS FEEDER IS MADE OF CUT METAL SO TAKE CARE WHEN UNPACKING AS THE EDGES ARE SHARP, (OK WHEN IN IN PLACE READY FOR YOUR BIRDS TO USE)
STAND THE FEEDER ON SOLID GROUND FOR EXAMPLE A LARGE SOLID PAVING SLAB.
