BEC Wise Chicken Feeder For Cage Mounting, with a 5kg capacity for pellets or corn. It is a unique design by BEC Osprey for poultry and game keepers looking to prevent feed wastage.
The 5kg Cage Mounted version here is supplied with plastic mounting arms (note: not a wall bracket) to mount outside a mesh run so the feed trough sits inside the run but the hopper is outside the run i.e. a hole would need to be cut in the wire mesh.
However, if you wish to mount this 5kg version on a solid surface, just add a wall bracket. The Wise feeder is a modular feeder with an option for extension cartridges to increase capacity up to 20kg - we advise wall mounting with two or more brackets if extending.
When the feeder is mounted through the mesh of your run it gives you easy access to the lid of the feeder without disturbing caged birds, which is ideal for certain types of game birds and poultry. It has a rain shield to protect the feed and is easy to maintain and clean.
It will take all types of free-flowing feed and prevents 'scratching out' by birds. The Wise Feeder also helps to prevent vermin from accessing your expensive feed by placing the feed trough high enough that they can't reach it (please note, squirrels are not counted as vermin in this description).
Some of the images show the feeder mounted on the outside of the mesh chicken run which would require a hole being cut into the mesh. However, it can be mounted on a vertical surface inside the wire mesh, therefore keeping your run intact, but, it may require a wooden mount for a bracket or, the use of cable ties to secure it to the mesh.
Dimensions: 5kg feeder are 30cm wide x 14cm deep x 25cm high.
FSF Tip: As with any gravity feeder, it does not work well with Layers Mash, it is best with a free-flowing pelleted feed.
Standard delivery via courier is next working day to most mainland UK destinations for orders placed before 2pm (excl. weekends and bank holidays). Please note this may not always be possible at busy times e.g. after weekends and bank holidays.
Flyte so fancy are excellent online suppliers of quality poultry goods. This feeder is attached to the fence or coop off the ground, thus minimising waste, pest interference and critically is very hygenic.
Great service Not as strong or solid as I thought it would be
Service was quick and efficient. I only wish that the postage was less. It stops me from buying more stuff! Had spent a lot of time looking for a feeder that keeps the food dry and stops the pigeons and rats from getting in, and at last I've found one! I have fitted it to the side of my wooden rain cover for the girls and it seems perfect. Easy to fill and they took to it straight away. A bit expensive for what it is but if it lasts for a long time then I shall be happy. 🐓🐓🐓
