Turn any container into a chicken feeder or waterer in 5 minutes!
The best poultry feeder system is now in DIY form - hole saw and drill bit included. Feed your chickens—not the ground! This "no-waste" and no-mess feeder and waterer kit comes with two feeding ports and five horizontal nipples. It is ideal for 4-6 chickens, 12 weeks or older, or really for fowl of any kind. (Little chicks are small enough to climb into the feeder, though, and you certainly don't want that.)
Save on feed costs over traditional feeders. With regular trough or hopper feeders, chickens can "beak out" feed, looking for choice morsels. Sometimes they may even jump up, feet in the food bin, and scratch feed out onto the ground. With those regular feeders, chickens can waste as much as they eat, or more! This "no waste" feeder that puts an end to all that; chickens have to stick their heads inside the feeder to eat. They're unable to beak out, and there's not enough room to stand and scratch. The included rain hoods prevent the food from getting wet.
Great for Ducks, too
These feeder ports also works great for ducks! Here is a handy tip to keep the
feed dry even with drippy ducks! Place the feeder further away from the
water source, the ducks will spill or drink the water by the time they
reach the feeder and not get the feed all wet!
