Do you have chickens and rats? Or chickens and wild birds that are eating more feed than the chickens? Here is the solution. But before you buy look for the different versions of our feeder, this is the  soft close version of our small feeder. There are also multi packed feeders that can lower the shipping costs down to as low as $9 to $12.00 each depending on how many and distance.


This is the small original version of the feeder but there are many different versions in two sizes.  Look in the Rat Proof Chicken Feeder Category for the soft close versions, the exterior versions, and the soft close exterior versions. Check out the multi packs for cheaper shipping, down as low as $9.00 to $12.00 per feeder depending on size, how many, and distance.   We don't sell a lot of small feeders so read the reviews on the very popular medium feeder by clicking here.   It is the same feeder except 4" narrower across the front.

The small metal rat proof treadle chicken feeder is the same height and depth as the medium rat proof treadle chicken feeder but the width is 7" instead of 11". It holds around 12 # of laying pellets and weighs around 12# packed for shipping. The small rat proof treadle chicken feeder is perfect for smaller coops and costs $60 plus shipping. The small rat proof treadle chicken feeder should feed four birds for twelve days, just under two weeks. The approximate assembled size is 18" deep x 10" wide x 19" tall. When you are ready to purchase add the item to your cart and then scroll down to find the PayPal icon to automatically insert your shipping information. You will need to add your daytime phone number for FedEx Ground. The feeder in the photo has the treadle link wire temporarily installed for pictures, it is sticking out and not bent under and clipped off. The soft close bar isn't attached in the photos either, look on our medium soft close feeder page to get the details.  Or look at the soft close kit in the parts and upgrade section of our shopping cart.  There will be a video showing how to install the soft close kit after you assemble the feeder.
