The new 20Kg 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 proof 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.
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.

|Great service. I like the product but my hens are not so sure. They don't likr the noise the treadle makes when it opens and closes. It really does need a dampened soft close mechenism. Would not buy another.|
|Easily assembled. It probably took the chickens about 3 or 4 days to get used to it, but the brick on the treadle for the first couple of days worked.|

|As another reviewer said, a brick on the treadle for the first few days and the chickens soon got used to it. It's no problem for them now and are feeding away quite happily. Thank you for the swift delivery.|
|I chose a River Systems treadle feeder because it's all metal and it was bought to protect feed from rats. The Incubator Shop shipped it in record time and supplied spare feet (excellent customer service). You do have to train your hens - As well as a brick I let them see me put meal worms in the trough & they soon got over their fears of the treadle : )|
|Chose this due to the all metal design as it will be outside in all weathers. It was delivered quickly and was easy to assemble. Our hens are only 2 months old so being able to adjust the weight to activate the treadle mechanism was also a reason why we chose this design. Kept a brick on it for the first couple of days to let them get used to using it, and they are all using it happily now, even the smallest hens. I'm happy with it so far, but it would be good if it held a full 25kg bag instead of 3/4 of it.|
|Great strong product, holds a bag of feed. Chickens seem happy to use it. Definitely buy another as my flock grows. Kids love the sweets in the box|
