Grandpa's Feeder gets shipped out to you right away when you order it. When we opened the box, we were actually surprised about how pretty they are. They are beautiful to look at and my husband was impressed by how well they are put together and all the little things the company did to ensure this works. On their website, they have a very informative video showing you how it works and they give you tips on getting your chickens used to using the feeder. Our chickens are on week 2 of the system and while the slight raising of the lid on this week still startles them, they are continuing to eat out of it. We love it!
If you think you don't need one of these, you are wrong. These keep out the weather and RODENTS! Grandpa's Feeders have painstakingly researched the weight of chickens and rodents, etc. and this feeder will not respond to the weight of the rodents, only to chickens. And if you think you do not have rodents, I hope you are right but they are out and about and are probably stealing some of your chicken's feed as I type this. When I speak of rodents, I mean mice, rats, squirrels, birds, etc. Any small animal that is a nuisance. And it also helps with keeping the chickens from defecating on their feed because the lid closes when they are nit eating so the food stays clean also.
The Large chicken feeder will hold enough feed to feed 12 chickens for 10 days. The standard feeder holds enough feed to 6 chickens for 10 days. For this giveaway, we will randomly choose 3 people to each win one standard feeder valued at $215 each.
The other two winners are: entry #334 Julie M.
