Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Which size feeder is suitable for Bantams?
A. All sizes are suitable for Bantam Chickens.
Holds good volume, reasonable strong construction. Easy for chickens to use. Agree with other review - the gap seems a bit small so some scratch layer mixes with large seeds or big pellets struggle to feed/ fall evenly in this unit. :-( Chooks were VERY grumpy when a little bit of rain somehow got in and swelled some of the feed so it wouldn't fall through properly.) Great for smaller feed and if kept under cover
This feeder only has a 9mm gap for the feed to fall through and no adjustment. Feed with corn and sunflower seeds or micro pellets molassas or oil seems to get stuck.
