Product overview

The Chooketeria is a one step self-service feeder that allows chickens the freedom to feed themselves anytime without human supervision or intervention.

An ingenious trough system provides ample space for multiple chooks to eat at once, with features to ensure your chook's safety. Reminiscent of a kitchen pedal bin, hungry chooks simply step onto a foot 'pedal', which swings open the troughs aluminium lid to expose fresh chicken feed inside. Once the chooks step off, the lid closes shut automatically to keep vermin, bugs and weather out. This means you can leave the property for a few days and return to happy, healthy chickens. Can hold approximately 5kgs of feed, meaning that at 125gms of pellets a day per hen, a full Chooketeria should last 8 hens up to 5 days.

Designed and manufactured in Dairy Flat, Auckland.

The Chooketeria is pretty easy to assemble and works really well once chickens get used to it. "Training" guide is helpful in teaching chickens how to use it.

Our hens love their new feeding station and have all now learnt to open the lid and feed contentedly. Very worthwhile purchase.

Simple to assemble and perfect to keep the chook food safe and dry. Took a bit to train my chooks to use it but now they have "nailed it" all is well.

Firstly the quality of service from Tradetested was amazing and delivery time the quickest I've experienced with online shopping. The Chooketeria has been great in eliminating food wastage and all the hens learnt how to use it within a really short time.

Well built, handy instructions and easy to assemble. Keeps pests out usually, although managed to catch a sparrow in it last week - he won't do *that* again. At first, chooks didn't like loud bang when lid closes. Maybe lid could be padded somehow to make it quieter. But it works well. Very happy.

Took a while for the chooks to get used to it and found it sticks open sometimes which isn't good. A spray with Crc seems to have helped this however.

Remarkable product chooks stepped on it immediately and when they were full they stepped off, lid down with a hell of a bang chooks took off to the safety of the hen house so until they lose their fear of it I am putting it into areas I don't want them to go fortunately they will have a short memory.

Piece of cake to assemble durable and robust. Chookies worked it out almost straight away, really funny watching them. No more mice and rats or birds stealing the expensive chook food. Thankyou tradetested brilliant idea and works like a charm.

Overall good - where side bars come into step tendency to snag and make too stiff to operate -can be corrected with extra washers on nuts. Good for keeping food dry in wet weather

Easy to assemble. Filled it with chook food for 2 days I used the peg which showed them the food. Within those 2 days the chooks were eating from it by themselves. I deem it extremely successful. No problems at all.

Can’t get the chickens to use this feeder as as soon as the lid moves they take off.

Trade tested service and delivery top as always. Re the product: A lot of hype goes in to the Chooketeria as solving all chicken feeding woes. The reality is the quality of the materials and building of it is average and the time it takes to train the hens to actually open the thing without smacking themselves in the heads - or frightening themselves with near misses that make them think they'll chop their combs off - doesn't, in my view, outweigh the benefits. I gave up trying to train my hens after a month (they nearly get there but don't stand with enough weight to completely open it). Now I use it as an 'open' and then 'closed' feeder. I either have not so smart hens or better uses for my time!

Chooks still getting used to it and really needs fixing to a solid base as a bit unstable. Great for keeping the birds out though!
