The new 12Kg Galvanised Treadle Feeder from River Systems is of the highest quality.
It has numerous features that give it an advantage over other treadle feeders as well as normal Feeders.
Firstly, being a treadle feeder means that it is vermin resistant which saves the user on both feed and therefore money whilst also keeping away those pesky rats.
Working your way from the top of the feeder downwards, it has a sloping lid which allows for rainwater to run off rather than sitting stagnant on top of the lid.
The lid is also hinged with heavy duty long lasting nylon, it also has a clip in place on the front of the unit which needs to be pressed in order for the lid to be opened.
Next on the list is an anti-drip rim which stops the feed getting wet when the birds are feeding from the unit.
There is an adjustment knob on the side of the treadle feeder which allows the user to adjust the height of the feed distribution shutter which means that you can control the flow rate of your food.
The treadle plate itself is galvanised and perforated to allow the bird comfort and support and ease of cleaning. It has 6 settings on the Treadle for differing weights of birds. The Treadle itself has three holes which can be selected depending on the weight of your bird. There are also 2 holes that you can select that the hooks attach to which again effect how much weight is needed to operate the unit.
The treadle feeder also features an anti-waste nylon grid which prevents the birds from scooping out the feed.
One major advantage of this treadle over other similar models is the nylon shutter guard, this makes the operation of this treadle probably the quietest on the market today when comparing with other similar products. This feature allows your birds to get used to the unit more quickly.
The last unique part of this treadle feeder is the plastic legs which slide onto the four bottom corners of the unit. These make sure that the treadle doesn't directly touch the soil which again adds to its effective lifespan.

|This is an excellent piece of equipment, it's completely vermin proof and waterproof. It holds half a bag of layers pellets which is excellent and they stay completely dry. We have 3 bantams and they love it. Would definitely recommend|
|Works really well, easy to assemble. Uber fast dispatch and delivery. Recommended.|
|My hens got the hang of this within a couple of days and they use it quite happily. It has a great capacity so I don't need to feed them every day. Best of all, there's no sign of the rats which have plagues us returning. The best chicken feeder we've used by far!|
|It took a couple of weeks for them to get the hang of it, i dont think they liked the clanking noise. However, they can feed whenever they like, eat as much|
|It took a couple if weeks for them to get the hang of it, I dont think they liked the clanging noise. However, they can feed whenever they like and eat as much as they like, they are very greedy! The best thing of all apart from happy chickens is that it is totally waterproof and vermin proof!|
|Took only a few days for our four hens to get the hang of the feeder. Used some corn 'treats' to lead them in by hand, then scattered the remainder in the trough part of the feeder. They didn't even seem to notice the clank of the treadle. Rat problem sorted! No food scattered around the feeder. Very cool bit of kit. Will get another for the run.|
|This is a well made feeder with some good ideas built in. My only issue is getting my hens to use it, they seem very wary of it and took off flapping their wings the first time on the treacle, I'm still trying to get them used to it by putting other food treats on the treacle.|
|This is not a Chinese copy. Manufactured in Italy - Activation weight can be adjusted for 0.8 to 2KGs's - very useful!|
