10 kg Treadle Feeder.
Save money - no more feeding the wildlifeThese feeders are now supplied complete with anti waste grill already fitted and a plastic treadle
The feed can only be accessed when the chicken is stood on the tread. This opens the feeder so the hen can reach the food. These are designed to be used outside and prove to be very effective. It may not be suitable for bantams.
Your birds may need some training to use their new feeder.
We suggest that you hold the treadle down with a weight for the first few days until the birds become accustomed to where they can find their food. After this they should be able to use the feeder without any problem.
This feeder requires some basic assembly.
Occasionally, if the rat problem has existed for some time, the rats may be large enough to operate the treadle when several are stood on it at one time. We suggest that our treadle feeder is used with other methods of rat control to prevent this.

Good product I had Mr and Mrs Chicken. The hen quickly worked out how to use the feeder, the cockerel needed her assistance to use it. Then my dog killed the hen and I now have to help him use it till I get him a new wife. Luise - Aberdeenshire
Excellent buy Arrived quickly although slightly damaged in transit. Chooks learned to use it in 2 days. Keeping the vermin at bay both feathered and furry. Highly recommend to any poultry keeper Sue -
very pleased,saves alot of feed being spoilt -
Works really well Was having trouble with starlings, crows etc, but this seems to have sorted the problem....Chickens ok with the 'clank' but it scared off the crows,some of which are heavy enough to use the treadle. I am saving huge amounts of feed now. Fiona Ramage - Somerset
Great Job Bought one of these over a month ago. They are a great job. However I felt the need to make a few improvements. 1. I sealed the joints with silicon to stop moisture entering the feed. 2 I raised the feed containment lip to stop hens scattering feed. They are messy eaters. Highly reccomended. -
Brilliant Arrived within a very short space of time and simple to put together. The hens have now got the hang of it but it did take around a week or so. The food is lasting so much longer now that we're not feeding the rest of the wildlife! Mike -
Excellent product Quick and easy to assemble and a very good quality product. Removed the brick from the treadle after a week and chickens started using it at lunchtime. Food usage has dropped right off as rats no longer tunnel in - no food source for them! Highly recommended. Paul Greener - Baughurst, Hants
