Only Genuine Dine A Chook Feeders can tick all the boxes. If you have been considering a treadle feeder, you seriously need to read more. Yes, a treadle feeder can feed chickens. But what the salespeople don't tell you is the downside. The feed can get wet if the chooks open the lid while it is raining. Also, chickens can walk on their food, meaning their feed gets contaminated with droppings. And let's not forget that chickens will naturally rake the feed onto the ground, which is an invitation for rodents.
Dine A Chook Feeders revolutionised the Chicken Feeder. Our Patent-pending design has so many features to combat all the issues above.
How a Dine A Chook feeder saves you money:
- No more wet feed. Our rain hood and gutter stops even the most torrential rain.
- Helps prevent rodents by keeping feed off the ground.
- Waste reducing design that stops chickens raking feed.
- No moving parts to wear out or replace.
- No cheap plastic here. Dine A Chook is Australian Made. We use UV treated, ASA thermoplastic, better than PVC in the elements.
How many chickens will the Small Chicken Feeder Twin Pack feed?
If you have a medium to large size flock of 8 chooks, this twin pack will keep them fed for up to 4 days. It will adequately feed up to 5 hens for 5 - 7 days. And remember, the chickens won't be eating mouldy wet feed. They will get wholesome tasty dry feed every time they go to the feeder.
Can other poultry use a Dine A Chook?
Yes. Ducks, Turkey and Geese can also use Dine A Chook. So if you have a mixed poultry flock, they can all enjoy the tasty fresh feed. And how good is this? If you ever visit Townsville Billabong Wildlife Sanctuary, go look at their happy Emu which simply love their DAC feeder.
What type of feed can I use in A Dine A Chook?
A waste-reducing feeder can only do so much. If you use the wrong type of feed, you will end up with waste. While you could use a scratch mix or homemade scrap mix in a Dine A Chook, it defeats the purpose of our waste-reducing design. If chickens are fed scratch mix, they will pick out what they like and leave the rest resulting in feed waste. We recommend a Pellet or Mash mix. Pellets and mash provide your hens with the best in a nutrient-rich diet as well as stop selective eating behaviour. So it is better to pay a little more for feed and save money by stopping feed wastage.

Dine A Chook Chicken Feeder = 3 years warranty against manufacturing defect
I got this twin set for my 11 chooks, and there is absolutely no mess or wastage, they all learned to use it within two days, and it's easy for my 4 & 6 year old to open and keep topped up. I only wish I had gotten the larger size, and a waterer too, but as we already had a metal self-waterer, I didn't. However, I can't put the apple cider vinegar in the metal one, so I still plan to get the waterer at some point. I also plan to order the feeder for the school chickens as well. The only thing I would have liked to see is perhaps a clear section partway down so you can see at a glance if the food level is below that area and needs refilling.
