Feedomatic Vermin-Resistant Treadle Feeders - available as 5kg, 8kg or 12kg capacity feeders.
Vermin-Resistant Galvanised Metal Treadle Feeder for Poultry. These Feeders will hold approx. 5kg, 8kg or 12kg of pelleted feed. Suitable for small flocks of chickens as width will only allow one or two birds to feed at a time.
A simple idea, the chickens stand on the green plastic mesh grid and the flap opens to reveal the food.
This all-weather galvanised and plastic feeder cannot be operated by vermin (they aren't heavy enough to trigger the opening of the feed trough), and it also cannot be operated by smaller wild birds so huge feed savings can be made.
Tough green plastic hopper lid, plastic treadle and plastic trough. Requires some self-assembly to put the treadle in place but no tools needed.
Note, as with all gravity feeders this does not work with mash feed.
The weight of the 5kg feeder itself is 5.5kg, the 8kg feeder is 7kg, the 12kg feeder is 9kg.

Rapid delivery and excellent product. I weighed the foot treadle down for a couple of days until my girls got used to it. Now they are using it properly and I have wasted no more layers pellets. Previously I was wasting at least 50% as the chickens would always manage to knock the containers over. No chance of that anymore. 100% recommend the company and this product.
It’s only been in with the hens a day and they have figured out how to get food from it which I was worried about. Seems well made and a decent quality plus delivery was quick and on time.
We ordered some supplies for our new chicken run. We’re all set up now and everything is great. Delivery was super speedy and everything was exactly what I wanted.
The feeder is great. Easy to put together, and easy to figure out. Just need to teach the chickens now!
Although the initial outlay is high the savings is enormous. Well worth having.
Fast efficient service and product great. Exactly as described Exactly as described , hens took to it quickly
