Grandpa’s Feeders as recommended on BBC Countryfile
Grandpas Feeders New Zealand
Chicken, Poultry, Pest
Chickens are fairly easy to keep; I've got about thirty laying hens. I shut them up at night to keep them away from the foxes. There they are, "hello chickens". I feed them on home-grown wheat, of which I've got thousands of tonnes and layers pellets. This (Grandpa's Feeder) is a clever little feeder, you poor the food in here and then the chickens stand on it to get at the food, and it keeps it away from the rooks. The chickens are clever enough to use it but the rooks aren't. It's fantastic! And then of course they pay me back in eggs, and poultry nutrition can be quite complicated and it's not just about the health of the bird, it's about the egg that they produce as well. What's in their diet has a lot to do with the thickness of the shell and the good quality of the yolk, so really tasty eggs means healthy chickens. There’s my breakfast for tomorrow! - Grandpa's Feeders as featured on the BBC's Countryfile with Presenter Adam Henson.
