The feeder can be used by chickens, bantams, and pheasants.
Using with lighter birds
For very light birds or bantams which are too light for the feeder, it is very easy to adjust the feeder by putting a small weight on the tread plate. Do not use with baby chickens as they may get caught when bigger birds step off.
How many chickens can feed at once?
A large feeder can have 4-5 chickens eating together at one time. Because of its larger capacity, we recommend the large feeder for flocks of a dozen or more birds.
The product comes almost fully assembled, just fasten the treadplate on and you're ready to go.
