The food in this type of feeder is only available when poultry stand on the step plate. The feeder shutter then opens and the feed is available. This prevents access and contamination by birds and vermin. This is all activated by the weight of the bird - which can be set from 250gm to 5kg. The feed chamber has space-dividers to keep birds from competing with each other. Also an anti-spill lip to prevent fall-out of feed. The feeder is completely weatherproof. All zinc-plated with glass-nylon lid and step plate. Dimensions: 5kg = 26 x 28 x 40cm high; 8kg = 26 x 28 x 45cm high; 12kg = 33 x 23 x 50cm high; 20kg = 33 x 26 x 66cm high. Needs minor assembly on receipt. Instructions included. From Europe.

The Nest-O-Matic is a nicely made ventilated nest box. All galvanised steel and UV-resistant plastic. The box is a generous 30cm square, with a height of 49cm overall. Swinging plastic curtains give cosy feel inside that poultry prefer for laying. The inside floor features an easily removed soft plastic mat. The front deck extends 16cm out, and lifts up for retrieval of eggs, which roll to the front under the deck, as the hen moves off them. The nest mat 'pile' keeps the eggs clear of any floor manure, as well as being soft and comfortable for the hen to sit on.
NB: This unit needs minor assembly on receipt. Instructions included.
Electrified poultry netting ensures safe and secure keeping of outdoor poultry. Eggs are safe. Predators, or over-inquisitive pets, are kept at bay. The netting is 112cm high x 50m long, and incorporates 11 horizontal electrified strands with strengthened top strand and non-electrified verticals and bottom strand. Electrification of all strands is by a combined loom at each end, complete with simple clips for attachment to any electrified fence wire. Fence lengths can easily be connected for longer runs. Each 50m long fence incorporates 15 plastic posts with steel dual-prong step-ins. Orange colour is highly visible. Spare top and bottom post-insulators are supplied. Extra posts available.

This brooder tank is most suitable for the amateur breeder. The circular design avoids any interior corners - the cause of many chick deaths. The brooder is easily moved about using the high handle. The tank is 60cm in diameter x 30cm high. The mesh floor is raised about 5cm from the large bottom pan so that droppings fall clear and are easily disposed of. Ample space is available for food and water containers (not supplied). The upper mesh cover is easily removed for access. This brooder should be ideal for the hobbyist raising 10-12 chicks, or for the breeder of other small animals, birds or reptiles. The brooder is supplied without heater lamp, but these are available separately in a range of wattages (see index). Intensity of the heat lamp can be controlled by adjusting the chain length. The whole unit has excellent ventilation for a healthy environment.
