I purchased my chickens at 17 weeks old and they toke to using both the feeder and drinker very quickly. They are now 7 months old. The feeder keeps their cage enclosure nice clean and they always have clean water. Highly recommend. I have a couple of water drinker around my property for my fluffys.
These are great products for your chook pen. We were really struggling to find a food dispenser that wouldn’t be too easy for the vermin (mainly rats and doves) to get into and a water dispenser that wouldn’t tip over and get all dirty and nasty for the chooks. I’m pleased to say that the Big Red Chook feeder and drinker solved our problems. The chooks worked out how to use both products very quickly. I’m pleased to say that our chook yard is now rarely visited by the local rat and dove populations and, as a result, our girls are MUCH happier. The water drinker also makes it super easy to use worming solutions and other “in water” products like ACV and health tonics. I highly recommend these for your chook pens.
My hennies love their feeder and waterer. When I open their coop in the morning, it’s a race to see who can get there first. Very convenient to know they have dry, clean food for a period of time and their water is free from dirt and debris. Best purchase ever!!!
