Chicken / Pheasant Feeders, These automatic feeders are suitable for Chicken, Pheasants and many other types of poultry and gamebirds. The work by dropping a small quantity of feed onto the ground each time a bird pecks the spring below the feeder. The birds soon learn to use them. They work well with both pelleted feed and grain. Small birds (sparrows etc.) do not peck hard enough to release the feed, this saves waste. The barrels are food grade and they are recycled, previously used to import food into the UK. The barrels have carry handles and they easily hold a full 25kg sack of feed. Each barrel has 3 legs made from tannalised timber, 50mm square. The springs are electro zinc plated. Spreader plates are used inside the drum so that the bolts do not pull through the plastic under use. These are the same as the feeders we use at the Poultry Paddock in Newcastle under Lyme where we have over 250 birds to feed, it reduces the chore of feeding the birds to a weekly job, rather than a daily one. Many people who buy Chickens from us have been impressed by the feeders and enquired about them so we decided to offer them for sale. There are many people making these now, and where ever you buy them from, good features to look for are: -Pressure treated legs (these last longer than dipped or painted) -Large spreader plates on the inside of the barrels -Legs that are angled for stability and fixed with bolts that are angled at 90 degrees to the barrel sides. £20.00, Newcastle, 0782 118 7160.
