Eliminate feed loss problems from rats, mice and other birds with the Feed-O-Matic!
The innovative design of the Feed-O-Matic allows poultry to easily access feed while keeping rats, mice and wild birds from being able to reach the feed trough. A metal door flap covers the feed trough when not in use and quickly opens when a bird steps onto the green front step. The covered feed trough helps minimize feed waste and spoilage while ensuring only your birds are able to access the feed.
The Feed-O-Matic feeders work best with dry pellet or crumble feed. Mash, whole grain and grit can cause the feeder trough to become clogged and limit flow.
 

The Feed-O-Matic features 1mm galvanized sheet metal construction and a durable heavy plastic latching lid. The front step is also constructed of durable heavy duty plastic and is designed to allow water and litter to fall through the grates.
The Feed-O-Matic will quickly pay for itself by saving you money on feed costs and minimizing or eliminating the need to use rat/mouse bait!

DISCLAIMER: The Feed-O-Matic feeder is a highly effective device designed to prevent wild birds, mice, rats and other small rodents from accessing poultry feed stored in the feeder. Extremely large rats, squirrels and heavy infestations of vermin have the potential to push the door open or chew through the plastic lid or trough. Only dry pellet and crumble feed should be used in the Feed-O-Matic. For bio-security purposes, we are unable to return any feeders once they have been exposed to poultry, feed, or farm locations. All refunds will incur a 15% re-stocking fee.

Great Feeder
I am impressed with the quality and so glad I purchased this Feeder.  Easy to assemble, arrived quickly too.  The hens seem to be catching on already and it's only been one day.

All I can say is WOW!
Model: (Smaller one) HAF12F, holds 26.5 lbs of feed.
Price: $75.99 + no tax
Shipping:  FREE via UPS (excellent! - as these things do weigh quite a bit - 16 lbs empty for smaller one, 19 lbs for the larger one)
Time from Ordering to Arriving at home: Fair - had to send email to the company 1 week after ordering as website said it had not been shipped yet and was still in 'processing', and no email or tracking # had been received.  Company responded quickly (same day) and resolved issue (it was on it's way but system hadn't been updated).  Rep (woman) was very nice about it.  Hey....we all have days like that so it only bothered me a little.
Assembly - Easy!  Was able to put it together by myself in less than 10 minutes.  (I bought the smaller one as I only have 7 hens).  Instructions aren't the best but you can figure it out pretty easily.  I didn't have to alter the assembly or drill holes or anything like that.  It was good as is.
Construction - solid and sturdy, hens can't knock it over.  Even empty it is a nice solid weight but not too heavy to carry.
Introduction to hens:  Put a rock on the treadle for 2 days and sprinkled some food close to it.  They figured it out quickly.  Was able to take the rock off after 3 days.  2 hens can be side by side to eat at one time.
Spillage - the treadle does have holes and some feed falls beneath this as they eat but very little.  The food falls too too low for them to get to it underneath where it spilled through the holes.  Solution?  I just move the feeder to a different place in the run when it's close to empty and they finish off what was left underneath (at most 1 cup of pellets).
Difference from PVC tube feeder I was using before:  Amazing.  They were flicking so much feed out of the tubes it was craziness; tubes were 3 feet tall and empty in 1 day from this.  Now there is hardly a mess and I love it.
Recommendation:  YES YES YES.  You can't beat the price for this treadle feeder compared to what's out there right now (Grandpa's Feeders, etc).  GO FOR IT!  You'll be glad you did.

Works as intended BUT...
This is a great feeder and works as designed. My chickens learned to use it without any problems and they beak out very little, reducing waste.

The one problem is the feeder cover: it's plastic; so the rats I was trying to prevent from getting into the feed chewed through the cover to get into the food. I replaced the original cover with plywood lined with metal strapping so all is well again. But it would be best if the cover was metal.

Great value!
I did research, compared reviews, prices, design, etc. I bought this one, because it was the best deal for the quality of the design, and it came in a size that made sense for my three city hens.

It arrived quickly. It took very little time to put together, and with little effort, the chicks at least understand that this is where their feed is now. I am trying to be careful not to confuse them, so I got this to start training before they are officially outside in the coop.
So far, so good!
I think this was a great way to go and money well spent.
