Have just bought our second AutoTreadle Feeder. Chookies learnt to feed out of it within 3 days and had a back up of pellets in a dish just incase they forgot . Have just got 12 growers and they will learn soon. The feed goes much further now as it is not lost to the wild birds. They get the wheat on the ground. We also have the Auto Drinker with a lid on legs which keeps the water cleaner. Much better. Oh and lots of hotline fencing which we do not switch on.. Works well. Will be receiving shares in Chook Manor soon! Thank you Chook Manor for a great service.
