Simplify feeding your backyard chickens with this traditional treadle feeder, which protects against two common threats to the animals' food supply: weather and predators. Fill the top bin with feed, and the chickens soon learn to step on the treadle-style lever below, using their body weight to open the lid and access the food inside. Hand crafted of solid pine, the feeder keeps food fresh and dry and keeps out birds, mice and other small animals, minimizing waste. Hand built from unfinished solid white pine at Amish workshops in Ohio. Holds approx. 4 gal. food (not included), enough for several days depending on your flock size. 11 1/2" x 14 1/4" x 16" high. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
