Grit Feeder (Large)
Chicken grit feeder with conical hat to make it waterproof. The hat pops on with a comforting “click” so it won’t fly off in the wind.
Chickens need grit in their diet for digestion and because the calcium in it helps to form good egg shells. Rather than wasting your grit and your money by throwing it on the ground, choosing a feeder to offer grit is a more practical and hygienic method. Using this feeder you can leave the grit out in all weathers for your chickens to take their grit whenever they want to. It keeps your grit clean and dry and saves waste that would be experienced by throwing it on the ground. Allowing your grit to get wet will dissolve the limestone in it so it goes to grey mush. This feeder will prevent that.
The feeder has handy portholes so the chickens can pop their heads through to eat.
Use a mixed poultry grit in your feeder to ensure that your chickens get a digestive aid and added calcium for good strong shells.
Removable top and internal fins for simple cleaning and disinfecting.
Dimensions: (W: 265 mm x H: 280 mm)
Please note the feeder is brown which keeps it looking nice because it shows less rain splatters.
