Dine a Chook Customer Feedback says it all!

The reviews of our Chicken Feeders and Drinkers tell you everything you need to know about Australia's favourite Feeder and Drinker Kit:

  • Dine a Chook feeders - working so well for my small Silkie Bantams attached temporarily here while I adjust height required. They can all feed with the food dropping down the feeder and no spillage to ground. Stayed dry inside during recent rain. Put some fresh sweet corn in to get them interested as some of these birds were not used to a feeder as they were rescued from total neglect in a small cage with no food apart from what they threw on the ground, so getting these birds used to using a feeder took bribery initially. Now all are happy to put their head right down the back of feeder. I love the carry handle and twist lock lid. These are far better than the other brand widely available on eBay. I will be changing my feeders/drinkers now to Dine a Chook. My set up here includes an automatic chicken door opener and on far right of roof a white battery sensor led light to deter night foxes/cats, combined with a range of Dine a Chook products, my birds' set up is complete.

  • I was a bit sceptical that i was spending a fair bit of money because I was too lazy to refresh the water every day. Now I realise that my chickens never have to eat feed that’s had rats in it or water that’s 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.

  • I purchased the feeder and waterer as a kit. Was very easy to set up by myself (on wooden fence), using the instructions provided through the website. No mess, no fuss and very sturdy. Excellent postage and packaging too
