The Dine a Chook Large Red Base Chicken Feeder is part of our patented range which reinvented poultry feeders for backyard chicken coops. No cheap imports or knockoffs here, Dine a Chook is the original and the best.

Already a huge hit, based on our customer feedback, chooks are drawn to the bright feeding bay, and it appears they learn to use the feeder much more quickly. Because of this, it is also perfect for young birds. And you will love the bright addition to your chicken coop. As with all Dine a Chook feeders, this is handmade in Australia. This cage mounted feeder features our patented design features which guarantee it will be reliable and functional for years to come.

* * We engineer Dine a Chook to save you money by stopping feed waste. If you use pellet and mash mix then you will get the most out of your feeder. If you use a scratch mix or homemade scrap mix, you encourage the birds to feed selectively. In doing so, you defeat the purpose of the waste-reducing feeder.

Can chickens see the colour red?

Scientific studies have shown that chickens may, in fact, see colour better than humans. As a matter of interest, Dr. Joseph C. Corbo of Washington University School of Medicine. St. Louis was the study author researching what colours chickens may see and concluded that "the chicken retina greatly exceeds that seen in most other retinas and certainly that in most mammalian retinas."  In short, chickens see red. Also, many backyard chicken keeper forums swear that hens are attracted to red.

So based on our research, we developed the Dine a Chook Red Base Chicken feeder.

You can find cheaper cage mounted poultry feeders on the market. But none come close to genuine Dine a Chook quality. To date, more than 50,000 customers in Australia, New Zealand and the UK have joined the Dine a Chook family. We're looking forward to you also becoming part of our family.
