This new feeder is designed to be used for baby chicks on up to full grown quail or poultry. It is designed with a hinged lid and also a control in the center to raise or lower the body which in turn will regulate the height of feed in the pan. This is very essential in saving feed. The pan is 1-1/2" H with a 12" diameter (3.81 cms H 30.48 cms diameter). The feed capacity is 16 lbs. This unit can be used to greatly cut down the number of times it would be necessary to put in feed for the young birds.
We place this feeder inside a shallow rubber dish to avoid the wasted feed. In this manner the feeder has served its purpose. Holds ample supply and keeps birds off feeder.

This feeder does not meet the purpose for which we bought it. It is not effective for small chicks. The feed tray is too wide allowing the chicks to get in and kick food out. This feeder wastes as much feed as any other we have used.

Love this feeder! It is gravity fed and it holds alot. Easy to fill and the cover keeps things out of the feed. Do wish this came in a smaller size though for smaller flocks.

16 lbs feeder
Really like this feeder, works well for both my chickens and ducks. Would like the top to extend out a little more to protect food from water. Doesnt bother the birds any but just want to avoid wet food.

16 lbs. Plastic Feeder - R-30
They work great. A a lot less waste with the feed flow adjustment. The flip top is nice but the hinge does not seem like it would last, but only time will tell.

16 lb Kuhl Feeder
Excellent Product. Top is built right so chickens can't perch on it. Allows for a couple days of food storage. Recommend this product.

Kuhl 16lb plastic feeder
It took me a while to figure out how to adjust the feed flow since their were no instructions with it. So initially, the chickens were wasting a lot of feed. But once I got past that problem, I really like it. The easy open flip top is nice and it holds an ample amount of feed.

Kuhl 16 lb red plastic feeder
I bought one of these last fall and it is really nice. It allows the feed to flow to the basin without having to help it like I have to with the regular metal feeders and it's pointed cover keeps the chickens from roosting on it and littering the feed.
