our chickens have a run under the trampoline. They have the eglu run front with door to get out and an eglu classic for sleeping/nestbox, and the under trampolin area is chicken wired. They have the old run winter cover as a tarpaulin slung under the trampoline. We initially used normal ground feeders but found when nearly empty they knocked them over. This new feeder means we can use the glug and grub and there is no spillage and they cant knock it over due to the weight of the water. It also fits in and out of the free ranger door. ideal for any chicken run
As chickens we absolutely love this feeder, it's easy to get to and our "human parents" fill it up every day cos it's easy to move. Thank you Omlet Team and keep up the good work.
I bought one of these to try and loved it so bought a second. I have a walk in run and found that the food and water were getting dirty very easily as the chickens were kicking their wood bedding into the grub and glug. They have stayed clean since putting on the stand. I have put 2 grubs on one and 2 glugs on another as am not sure they would understand one side was for water and the other for food. very worthwhile purchase
It makes life so much easier. I have made an extention to the cube run. I can now feed the hens without having to struggle to reach the old run where the feeder used to attatch to the side.
This stand is jsut what I needed as it is so easily moved when necessary. Highly recommended.
I bought 2 of these so I could hang a drinker and feeder side by side outisde when they were free-ranging. My chooks didn't understand that after eating they then had to walk round round the other side to get a drink.....!
An unintended use, which has proved very helpful during this cold snap when the girls have been confined to the run, is being able to use the stand to carry the feeder and drinker inside in the evening and carry fresh water & mash out again the next morning.
This is just what you need if you have a WIR and nowhere to hang your glug and grub....it isn't high enough for the super glug . I love it and so do my chickens .
