Feeding trough for chickens & poultry - You have to consider this when buying a poultry feeder
Feeding troughs for poultry are available in different shapes, materials or as automatic poultry feeders with the aim of providing your chickens, quail etc. with optimally and appropriately poultry feed. Depending on the poultry breed, the poultry trough should meet the needs of your animals. For example, small chicks need a different automatic poultry feeder than pigeons, which need a pigeon feed trough specific to pigeons.
How to choose the right feed trough for your poultry:
1. Size of the feed trough
The size of the poultry trough cannot be fixed at a flat rate. Rather, it depends on different aspects:
- How many chickens do you want to take care of?
- How often do you top up the chicken feed?
If you own a large group of chickens, you should always choose a chicken trough with a larger capacity. In private chicken farming with only a few chickens, a smaller feed trough for poultry is sufficient. However, if you only feed them once a day, you should use a larger poultry trough.
In order to determine the correct capacity of your poultry feeder, one basically takes the following reference: If several chickens peck and eat at the chicken trough at the same time, which is the case with large chicken farms, narrow and wide feed troughs are more suitable than round feed troughs.
Our tip: If you keep a large number of chickens, it is best to place several feeding troughs in the chicken coop and also in the poultry outdoor pen. This way, each chicken can peck enough chicken feed and the harmony in the hen house is maintained.
2. Protect poultry feed from food predators
Your chicken feed is not just tasty for chickens. In the chicken coop, food residues like to attract predators such as mice, rats or birds. If you only want to feed your animals, an automatic poultry feeder is best suited. The automatic poultry feeder is attached to the wall of the chicken enclosure and has a flap that only opens when your chicken operates it with its weight. This means that other rodents and birds cannot contaminate the chicken feed and your chicken population remains healthy and easy to lay.
You can find more information on the automatic poultry feeders available from Agrarzone in one of the sections below.
3. Easy cleaning
When selecting the feed trough for poultry, care must be taken to ensure hygienic and uncomplicated cleaning. Our feed troughs made of food-safe plastic or high-quality metal have mostly rounded corners and can be easily cleaned.
4. Appropriate needs
Depending on the poultry breed and size, the feathered animals need different feeding troughs where they can easily get to the poultry feed.
Feeding trough for chicks: To raise healthy, strong chickens, there is no getting around the purchase of a suitable chick feeder. For chick rearing with many chicks, broad models are more suitable than round chick troughs. This allows several chicks to peck chick feed at the same time.

Where should you put the poultry feed trough?
You can set up the chicken feeder anywhere in the chicken coop. However, make sure that the environment is hygienic and clean so that the chicken feed is not contaminated. A poultry feeder or chicken feed mixed with bacteria and germs can endanger your chicken stock through diseases.
It is best to place the poultry feeder in a place where the chickens can get at any time and which is protected against strong weather conditions. If your chickens have access to a outdoor pen, you should also place a poultry feeder for your poultry in this enclosure.
How is a poultry feeder cleaned?
Regular cleaning of the poultry feeder is particularly important for a vital and healthy chicken population. Clean your poultry trough regularly, preferably once a week. To do this, remove the remaining feed and wipe the poultry feeder with a cloth soaked in warm water. Heavy dirt can be removed with a little detergent. Then rinse the poultry feeder again with fresh water and dry it before adding fresh poultry feed.
