Helps stop feed waste and sickness

A Dine A Chook feeder addresses the problems found in many feeders which lead to health and illness. 

A Dine A Chook 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. 

Patented Rain and Gutter System:

While many have tried to copy our Patented Rainhood and Gutter System, ours remains the Number One on the market. 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.

Rodent and Wildlife Resistant:

Together with a Good Coop Management Plan, a Dine A Chook Feeder ensures your Coop will be about as Rodent Proof as you can get. The Rain Hood helps prevent rodents from getting to the feed while the Height from the Ground helps prevent them coming up from the Ground. It also aids in stopping other pest birds and Wildlife. Save your money by only feeding your chickens and Poultry.

Benefits of the Dine A Chook Feeder over a Hanging Feeder or Treadle Feeder.

Top Benefits of a Dine A Chook compared to Hanging or Treadle feeders include: 
  • No faeces contamination in feeder bay
  • No moving parts to ever replace
  • Helps deter rats and mice
  • Waterproof design stops feed getting wet
  • Outlasts any other feeder
  • Unbeatable lifetime guarantee*

Hanging Feed Units: Rats are incredibly intelligent. 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: Look like they are perfect, but they are not. 

With moving parts which fatigue and fail over time, you are always either replacing components or the entire feeder. 

Many 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. Wastes 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!
