Feeder Capacity:

The Alma Basica is a new treadle feeder manufactured in Italy from galvanized sheet metal. It is specially designed to avoid any feed wastage - only when the chicken gets on the treadle will the tilting door open, giving access to the food. Inside this feeder there is also a special anti-waste grid which prevents chickens from throwing the feed on the ground. Furthermore, the closed door ensures that food is sheltered from the rain, as well as being inaccessible to other birds, mice or vermin (avoiding the proliferation of dirt and dangerous diseases). The Alma Basica Treadle Feeder also has 12 weight adjustments for opening the tilting door from 300g to 700g. It comes partially pre-assembled; the assembly of the supplied components does not require any tools. *Please Note: Do not use powdered feeds (e.g. Layers Mash, Layers Crumle, Chick Crumbs) in this feeder.


Key Features

• Sloping roof: Designed to facilitate the downflow of water from its top and the outflow of condensation that may form inside.

• Heavy duty plastic hinges: The hinges for the tilting door and lid are made of heavy duty plastic for a longer life.

• Feet: plastic supporting feet avoid the direct contact of the metal sheet with the ground, thus preventing inevitable oxidations that compromise the life of the feeder.

• Rounded anti-drip rim: Prevents the bird from getting hurt whilst eating, and the rain from soaking the food.

• Anti-waste grid: Prevents the birds from scooping out the feed.

• Adjusting cable: Sets the weight needed to open the tilting door. Easy to assemble and adjust without the use of tools.

• Treadle: Designed to offer the bird a stable and comfortable support.

Instructions for Use

Directions for use:
Simply remove the lid, fill with feed and lock the lid back in to place.
*Please Note: Do not use powdered feeds (e.g. Layers Mash, Layers Crumle, Chick Crumbs) in this feeder.
