Patent Pending Rain and Gutter System

Many have tried but none have succeeded in bettering our Patent Pending Rainhood and Gutter System.

Made to do one job, stop feed waste from preventing it from getting wet.

And it Works.

With years of development behind today's Hood and Gutter System, Dine A Chook Rain Hood and Gutter is unbeatable.

Designed for Tropical Rainfall of Queensland, the Dine A Chook Rain and Gutter System keeps your feed dry

 

Compare Dine A Chook Feeder with a Hanging Feeder or Treadle Feeder.

  • No faeces contamination
  • No moving parts
  • Almost zero maintenance
  • Helps deter rats and mice
  • Waterproof to stop feed getting wet
  • Outlasts any other feeder

Hanging Feed Units: Don't underestimate the intelligence of a rat. Even hanging Feeders 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: They look perfect, but they are not. Moving parts fatigue and fail over time. So you are either replacing parts or replacing the feeder. Cheap treadle feeders rust out in very little time at all. The feed can still get wet. If your chickens feed while it is raining, feed gets damp or wet and spoils. So you end up wasting feed that has cost you money. Another very noteworthy point is Chickens get sick when they eat feed contaminated from faeces. With a treadle feeder chickens can get up onto the feed while another is holding the pedal down. Waste can now contaminate the feed.

A Dine A Chook automatic chicken feeder only allows a Hen to put their head and beak into the feeding bay. There is almost no possibility of faeces contamination in the feeder. Rats can still take over a treadle feeder. Working as a team, Rats learn to stand on the step to open the Feeder and access the Feed.

The reality, regardless of 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 Chicken Coop clean tidy and clean, you shall all but eliminate Rats.

Unique Patent Pending Design Features:

Dine A Chook Chicken Feeders stops feed waste. The Silo Inspired Feeding Bay stops chickens raking feed on the ground. Our waste reducing chook feeder saves you money. Able to feed up to 12 hens, our large chicken feeder is perfect for the small to medium size chicken coop.

Our unique horizontal and vertical paddle technology keeps chicken feed in the feed hopper bay. No mess on the ground and virtually no feed wasted.

Helps prevent illness and disease

A feeder that allows chickens to walk on the feed invites the opportunity for infection and also contamination. This leads to illness and even disease which can spread quickly through the flock.

The Dine A Chook Automatic feeder only allows the chickens head comes into contact with feed in the feed bay. There is almost no possibility of faeces contamination in the feeder.

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. Quality outdoor furniture uses ASA because of its strength and durability in an out of doors environment. When buying Genuine Dine A Chook you are buying the best in design as well as construction and materials.

    best ever

    Posted by Noelle on 14th Nov 2012

    I was a bit sceptical that i was spending a fair bit of money because i was to lazy to refresh the water every day .
    Now i relise that my chickens never have to eat feed thats had rats in it or water thats not clean.
    I can go away for a weekend and know they are being fed, well worth the money.

    Simply the best feeder ever!

    Posted by Fiona on 25th Oct 2012

    I really love this feeder!
    Absolutely no waste, no mess & my chooks wasted no time in working out how to use it. Best of all the wild birds can't use it and neither can rats!
    Thanks for making such a wonderful product AND for keeping the price reasonable too.

    Fabulous product

    Posted by anonymous on 15th May 2012

    This product is the best. The chooks took to it straight away. Mess free, fuss free. We only have a small run so space is at a premium. This product keeps the feed up and out of the way. Easy to access to top up the feed. Love it!!
