One of the frustrating problems chicken owners face is that hens require daily feeding to keep them laying well. This means that to ‘get away’ for a few days, hen owners often have to rely on friends and neighbors to feed their poultry. Grandpa’s Feeders overcomes this problem, by making available either 9kg/20lb of feed (standard feeder) which will feed approximately 6 chooks for 10 days, or 18kg/40lb of feed (large feeder) which will feed 20 chooks for 6 days, or alternatively 10 chooks for 12 days.
“A note to let you know how pleased I am with my “chicken Feeder”. I now feel free to leave home for a couple of days knowing the chooks are well fed (and the mice are starved).” - Daphue Matthew
The most common and frustrating problem for poultry owners is that other birds, such as sparrows, compete for, and in many cases steal the lion’s share of your hens’ food. More stealthily and therefore not so noticeably, rats and mice live around domestic poultry knowing there is always a daily free feed coming. These rodents and wild birds pose a serious health risk to both hens and owners. Grandpa’s Poultry Feeders prevent these unwanted critters getting a look in - they are both sparrow and rodent proof, eliminating this major problem once and for all.
“Your product has been so marvelous I am more than happy to help endorse it. I live in the middle of NSW and have silos all around my house. We experience mouse plagues on a fairly regular basis and this product saves me so much in both hygiene and money. Thank you again.” - Sue Hewitt Nyngan, NSW, Australia
