Feeders and drinkers are an essential piece of kit when it comes to chicken keeping, there are a number of options to choose from depending on your set up.

Chicken feeders

Chicken feeders for smaller flocks

The Eton Plastic Poultry Feeder (see image) is good for smaller flocks and is available in either 1kg or 3kg capacities.

The feed goes into the holder and drops down into the sections below allowing chickens to eat as much as they need while keeping the remainder of the food dry in wet weather. This feeder is available directly from Omlet, shop either the 1 or 3kg versions via the links below:

Chicken feeders for larger flocks

The Blenheim Poultry Feeder with Rain Hat and legs can hold up to 6kg of chicken feed, which is perfect for larger flocks and those times when you can’t be around to feed.

We recommend this product for sturdiness and size, along with the rain hat which makes it good for both indoor and outdoor feeding.

This feeder can be bought directly from Omlet, via the link below:

Chicken drinkers

Chicken drinkers for smaller flocks

The Eton Poultry Drinker is available with water capacities of either 1.5 or 3 litre, which is more than enough for a smaller backyard flock of chickens.

This type of drinker helps to keep the water inside fresh and the base will refill as it empties. Eaton drinkers can be taken apart for easy cleaning.

Chicken drinkers for larger flocks

For larger flocks or if you just want a larger drinker, we recommend the BEC Combination Drinker which is available in either 6 or 12-litre capacities.

We like this drinker because it comes with legs which raise the drinker off the ground which helps to prevent dirt from getting kicked in.

The BEC drinker will refill as it empties and comes apart for cleaning.
