Unique Features:

The Dine A Chook Automatic Chicken feeder is made to save you money and stop feed wastage instantly. Our Silo Inspired Feeding Bay prevents Chickens Thrashing as well as Raking their feed mix. Meaning almost zero feed wasted on the ground. To further help Chickens which selectively feed we recommend a Pellet Feed Mix. Scratch Feed Mix are the ones with all the colourful grains, corn etc. in them. Chickens develop selective feeding when using scratch mixes. Such behaviour stops them from getting the essential nutrients they require as they are only eating what they like. Pellet mixes give them less choice and more essential nutrients. Our Chicken feeder Bay uses both Horizontal and Vertical Paddle technology to prevent raking and wasted feed. This unique design makes our automatic chicken feeder one of the best poultry feeders on the market.

Featuring rear moulded mounting hooks, no screws or rivets, the design is easy to install in minutes. Plus all our Feeders come with our Free Dine A Chook Mounting Kit so you can Install your Chicken Feeder to Timber and Metal.

Patent Pending Rain and Gutter System:

While some have tried to copy the concept of our rain hood and Gutter System, the fact is Dine A Chook has the Best Patented Rain and Gutter System. It works. It keeps your Poultry feed from getting wet. Designed for the Tropical Rainfall of North Queensland, the Dine A Chook Rain and Gutter System keeps chicken feed dry even in the most torrential downpours. So regardless of weather conditions, you can count on Dine A Chook chicken feeders to keep the rain out.

Rodent Resistant Chicken feeder:

The Dine A Chook Chicken Feeder together with a Good Coop Management Plan ensures your chicken coop will be about as Rodent Proof as you can get. The Rain Hood helps prevent rodents from getting to the feed from the top while the height from the Ground helps prevent them from coming up from the Ground. It also aids in stopping other pest birds and Wildlife. The Dine A Chook Automatic chicken feeder provides you with complete confidence that your chicken feed is only going to your hens.

Benefits of A Dine A Chook Feeder vs. Hanging or Treadle Feeder.

Hanging Feed Units: Rats are incredibly intelligent. Also, hanging feed units are not entirely Rat proof. In the case of a Hanging Feeder, it won't take Rats long to realise they can climb down the chain to get to the Feed. Also, many Hanging Feed Units fail to address the Rain meaning Feed can be open to getting wet.

Treadle Feeders: These are also not immune to Rats. Working as a team, Rats learn to stand on the step to open the Feeder and access the Feed. Treadle Feeding Units are also not ideal for poor weather when a Chicken opens the lid; rain gets in wetting the feed. Treadle feeders also use hinges, springs and other mechanisms that require maintaining. With Dine A Chook Chicken feeders have no moving parts. Giving you complete confidence of reliability for years.

Don't be fooled by advertising or marketing claims. There just is no 100% Rat Proof Feeder. What we can tell you based on customer feedback, the combination of a Dine A Chook Feeder as well as a Good Coop Management plan is a highly successful way of preventing Rat Infestations. Our waste reducing Feeder keeps food off the floor. If you keep the Coop clean tidy as well as clean, you shall all but eliminate Rats.

Super Easy Installation:

Install your Dine A Chook Automatic ASA Feeder in minutes. The supplied mounting kit allows you to fit your feeder onto timber, colorbond and also wire mesh.

Where do you put a chicken feeder?

This will depend on if you have a large chicken run or a small enclosure. If you have a small coop then it is ideally placed either outside the door or just inside the door. To maximise the freshness of chicken feed you should put the feeder out of the sun and elements. In a large chicken run, depending on the size of the flock you may put one feeder near the coop and another on the cage wire of the run in a shady position. 

Difference between ASA and PVC plastic

Genuine Dine A Chook uses ASA thermoplastic. Compared to PVC, ASA is significantly more resistant to environment stress in the outdoors. It retains its gloss and resists cracking or deterioration in the elements far better that PVC. ASA is used in Quality outdoor furniture because of its strength and durability in an outdoor environment. When buying Genuine Dine A Chook you are buying the best in design as well as construction and materials.


The Top 5 Chicken Feeders for your chicken coop

Customers regularly ask us, "What are the Top Chicken feeders for your chicken coop."  There really is no top 5. While a Quality treadle feeder comes in second to the Dine a Chook, other feeders such as Hopper Feeders, Open trough feeders and Galvanised Gravity fed Chicken feeders allow feed to get wet. They also invite rats and mice to the coop. When you consider that a good quality treadle feeder will eventually rust as well as has parts that will need replacing, the Dine A Chook is a clear winner. 

So forget about looking at inferior Chook feeders, join the Dine A Chook family. save money and buy the best first time round.
