Really difficult to get the food in
3 April 2022
I got one of these with my new Eglu cube and it's no easier to get the food in than the last model. I carry food around in a large plastic jug and it's impossible to pour food into without spilling it. Granted, the food stays dry in there but that's no good if the food won't go into it! You have to unhook it, lay it on its back and then hook it back on. That's no fun in the rain and when you have four henhouses to replenish. I've bought four of the new drinkers instead.

Great rain-proof feeder
30 March 2022
I was looking for a rain-proof feeder that hooked onto the fence for a while and couldn't find anything. I came across these and they were just what I was needing. I use them for free choice kelp and oyster shell for my ducks. The ducks can fit their heads inside to get the supplements, and the supplements have not gotten wet even in heavy rain.

Excellent feeder but takes absolutely ages for delivery!

Although I got a feeder with the Eglu Cube I purchased I wanted a second feeder for oyster shell. Products are great but I think I could have taken delivery of a custom build car faster than my order being delivered! If you want any Omlet products be prepared for a very long wait!

Best feeder ever
2 February 2021
I've had chickens and bantams for a few years and get fed up when their round feeders get rained on and the food gets wet and horrid. I've been so pleased with this feeder hanging on the pen wire as the rain - and snow -has not got in, and I've used it for a month. Great design - looks as though it will last too.

Perfect shape and size - fill it up and it lasts ages - still keeps the food clean and dry - amazing - my girls love it

My rescue hens are very happy with their new feeder. As they are intensely interested in anything new in their run, it took them about 5 seconds to eat from it. Really pleased that the design keeps the food dry and difficult for the hens to scatter about.

The feeder is great. Light weight but sturdy, comes off easily to clean and empty, I wasn’t sure my runner ducks would use it but they do and it cuts down on mess. And it looks good.

The best design for keeping food clean and dry. It took a few days for my new girls to work it out, but showing them what was inside and adjusting the height to my birds, meant it’s now my feeder of choice. I did order a different, more classic design, but found myself scooping out soiled food from my girls (even with putting the feeder on bricks), and in the rain the food got wet. Have gone back to this design and it’s advantages mean I won’t swop again! The best thing is the extra space inside the run due to the ability to hang inside the coop.
Thick hens. Not easy to put food in

Love the colour.
The food stayed dry which is why I brought it but it's difficult to scoop food in. Have to take food station to my shed and use a scoop to fill it up.
My hens took a week to work out how to put their heads in to eat.
