Chickens will crawl on top of a feeder on the floor and scatter the feed onto the ground. They will defecate in a feeder on the ground or on the floor on top of the scattered food. Eating feces-covered food causes illnesses in the chickens and can render them inedible.
Hanging Chicken Feeder
Use a hanging feeder to solve the problems caused by scattering feed on the floor, or ground, or setting a feeder on the ground. Our inventory of feeder options ranges from 20- to 50-pound capacity devices in metal or plastic.
Stromberg’s inventory offers lidded options that also feature feed covers and feed grills, so you can protect the feed from chickens scratching it out of the feeder. With the grill on the hanging feeder, they can only peck it out of the feeder to eat it.
