#1: Ensure Your Chicken Feeder is Made of High-Quality Materials

Investing in a chicken feeder built with high-quality materials such as galvanized steel and alloy (which makes them much stronger and more durable) is an investment you can make with confidence.

Ensuring the feeder you purchase is waterproof and can withstand the elements is extremely important as well.

One chicken feeder that has been trusted for over 25 years and made with high-quality materials, and recognized as one of the best quality feeders in the world is the Grandpa’s Feeder, Standard Chicken Feeder (also comes with a 2-year money-back guarantee). 

#2: Is Your Chicken Feeder Authentic? Avoid Cheap Knock-offs.

We strongly suggest you do some extra digging if you stumble across a chicken feeder that is cheap.

Many knock-off brands claim to have the same quality as Grandpa’s Feeders but in reality, have created a cheaper, low-quality replica that can leave you with a product that will have a fraction of a lifespan and could be harmful to your birds.

Be sure to read the company reviews, FAQs, and return policies before investing in a cheap, knock-off brand to ensure if you do make the purchase, you can get your money back if they don’t deliver. 

#3: Does Your Chicken Feeder Manufacturer Provides Exceptional Customer Service/Support

Purchase a feeder from a company that takes care of their customers and cares as much about your bird as you do.

Sometimes feeder assembly can be challenging, so working with a company that provides excellent customer support will go a long way in ensuring you set up your feeder correctly, and your birds are safe and happy.

Here is an example of a tutorial on how to set up a Grandpa’s Feeder.

At the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

Investing in a high-quality product from a company that has been trusted by thousands of customers is the right move in ensuring you are making the best decisions.
