Brilliant if going away for a few days, and great for keeping the birds and pests from devouring their feed. I highly recommend this product, they soon learn where their pellets are.

20kg feeder

Really good Product didn’t take the chickens long how to work it. Easy to control how much feed is allowed out.

Purchased as an additional to my existing 12kg feeder the same

One of the best purchases I’ve ever made for my back yard chickens. I use this feeder in combination with the 18ltr top fill auto waterer bucket. In August 2018 I severely broke my ankle while simply walking into my kitchen. I was hospitalized for 2 weeks then unable to walk for 3 months. It took a number of days to arrange a family member to come and check on my chickens and there were breaks of up to a week at a time before they were checked on again. If not for this large size auto feeder, plus auto waterer combo, my chickens would have died. Very good price and quality and I honestly cannot recommend highly enough.

I purchased the 20kg feeder a year ago and it has been fantastic

Chooks learnt how to use it in no time and by the second day they were all using it. I needed a second feeder for my other chook house at short notice, Chook Manor were excellent and very prompt delivery - from Christchurch to Rural Waikato in 4 days. Assembly is easy. It lives up to its promise of keeping pests out, I see signs that mice have been searching for food but thankfully they can't get to it. I like the recent modification of being able to adjust how much feed is available at the base as it also helps prevent food blockages. This feeder has been a great investment.

Should have done it sooner!

Been thinking about feeders for ages. The sparrows sneaking in to steal from traditional hanging feeders were bugging me.
Chose this 20 kg model from Chook Manor. Within 4 days they have all learned how the treadle grants them access to food, AND no more sparrows.
I can only speculate as to the food cost saving paying back this feeder within no time at all.
Simply brilliant.
