Traditional Chook Feeders

Traditional Chook Feeders

Selecting a chook feeder, or Turkey feeder or duck feeder or chick feeder, or poultry feeders generally.

Many factors effect feed consumption. The breed of fowl, the age of the bird, the time of year, the weather conditions, the type of housing, and the type of feed all have an effect.

We can however talk in averages and so set about choosing a feeder which suits our situation.

When using a feeder for layers it is better to have a round feeder rather than a trough. This stops dominant birds from controlling the access to the feed.

Feeders should hang to prevent the birds sifting the feed and spilling some out. The best height is between back and eye height.

Select a feeder which will allow once week filling for layer flocks. This means the system is more convenient.

For laying flocks bigger than 200 birds use two feeders in the shed one at each end.

This also helps prevent dominant birds from stopping the birds lower down the peck order from getting to the feed.

With chicks, the choice is between round hoppers and troughs. Troughs are good with fine mash feeds but prefer round hoppers for crumbles.
