Using with lighter birds
This feeder is suitable to use for lighter birds such as bantams as well as larger birds. Do not use with baby chickens as they may get caught when bigger birds step off.
How many chickens can feed at once?
A standard feeder can have 3- 4 chickens eating together at one time, but can be easily be used to feed a flock. We recommend the standard feeder for flocks up to a dozen chickens but if you don't mind filling it more often then it will support more.
This product comes almost fully assembled, just fasten the treadplate on and you're ready to go. The whole product fits easily into your car for transport.
