We're excited to be now stocking Grandpa's Feeders! Having a Grandpa’s Feeders chicken feeder will save you time and money, protecting your chicken feed from pests and allowing you to leave the chickens to fend them themselves for up to ten days.

- Keep out sparrows and rodents

- Built to last

- Weather proof

- They make fantastic presents

- Save time and money

How it works - 


Grandpa’s Poultry feeders have a cantilevered lid over the feed trough. This lid is lifted by the weight of the chicken stepping onto an attached platform. This allows it to feed from the trough. Once the chicken steps off the platform, the lid closes to prevent sparrows, rats, etc. from getting access to the food.

Stage One - Training

Initially, your poultry needs to become used to the feeder and this is very simple, requiring only the positioning of two bolts (provided). For the first seven days the feed trough lid is left fully open and the platform locked down while hens feed, so they become used to standing on the platform and putting their heads into the trough to feed.

Stage Two - Training

After seven days the two bolts are repositioned so the hinged lid will close only half way. This enables the hens to get used to the lid and platform moving.

Finally, seven days after this, the two bolts are removed altogether and your feeder is in its permanent mode. By now the hens will be fully used to the feeder and will be using it at will.

Reviews - 

"We love our Grandpa feeder and have cut our feed bill by half as we are no longer feeding hundreds of birds and worst still rats and mice." - Moira and Neil Landford - Queensland, Australia

"Our family was lucky enough to win a Grandpas Feeder in the Weekly Times competition earlier this year. We were inspired to renovate our old chicken shed so that the building and run matched the professional appearance of the Feeder.Now we have everything installed and working beautifully and we are finding that our feed use has reduced by AT LEAST 75%. We feed organic feed so that adds up to quite a saving. No more megaflocks of India Mynahs! Thank you very much for providing the Feeder, we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone." - Marina Stewart - Victoria, Australia

"An outstanding product ... I am only using a third of the food I used to and have stopped feeding the local wild bird population." - Peter - South Australia
"Great feeder, had second thoughts about the price initially, but now I am absolutely convinced this is the best feeder on the market. Chickens happy, me happy, wildlife & mice very un-happy...." - John Mangan - Melbourne, Australia
