It took me a while and a phone call to Omlet to work out how to put this together. Clue: the loops go through the holes from the outside...
I'm hoping that it'll make feeding and watering a little easier and that I'll be able to check easily whether they have enough feed, rather crawling around in the dark, wind and rain trying to hook feeders to the inside of the Go Up!

Tends to collapse easily especially when attaching full feeders.

Omlet Says: Hi Carolyn, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. This isn't a very common problem. I wonder if there is a fault with your stand? I would suggest to be cautious not to overfill your drinker and feeder and if the problem continues to contact our customer service team and we can issue you with a replacement.
I bought this because I had no way of using the feeder and drinker supplied when I bought my Eglu up - I didn't need to run. These are grand, BUT I had to make a modification to them because they didn't fit together very well. That said, they are fit for purpose.
It's a great idea, I love the flexibility of putting the food/water anywhere but my chickens try to stand on the food and water holders and constantly tip them over. The stand doesn't tip but the hooks on the back of the feeders aren't deep enough to prevent the food and water from falling off - shame as the concept is great
I have tried most types of feeders/drinkers on the market. This one is the best so far. I keep it under my Go Up for a little added protection from the rain. The food so far has stayed completely dry. The stand is simple, easy and convenient to use and great for keeping the feeding area clean.
I'd just got some ex-caged hens and they really didn't know what to do with anything in the real world. After a few days when their instincts kicked in and they started acting like chickens they were scratching and kicking dirt into their feed and water, this just thr right height for them and stays upright and clean whatever they do to it.
supports the drinker and feeders well. And easier than trying to lean in and get the feeders from the run.
We wondered what to do with the glug & grub feeders when we bought out Egloo, as we didnt need the run that they attach to.
This is the perfect solution. The feeders fit easily onto the stand & the handle means moving it around the run & garden is simple.
We've taken the top off our grub feeder to give the girls a double water feeder.
Since extending my run, I was struggling to work out where to put my feeder, without obscuring my view of my gorgeous birds... the feeder stand was the perfect answer! The birds love the position and also take it turns to perch on top of it! Great product again, thanks Omlet!
Well made and seem to work well. Better than the previous feeders (the ones with the red bottoms which were terrible to unscrew and fill.
