Spiral Feeder & Predrilled Buckets
A basic and easy way to feed poultry and gamebirds. Feeder may be fitted into the base of any bucket.
Spiral fits most plastic buckets. Predrilled buckets are available (come with one 1.5" dia hole in bottom).
Crumbles, wheat, barley and cracked corn can be used in these feeders.
Note: Spiral Feeder & Buckets sold separately, see below.
- We have noticed that our chickens use it as both a feeder and a source of entertainment.
- Spiral can be attached permanently to bucket.
- Bucket acts as a feed reservoir.
- Spiral is refilled as feed is dispensed.

One thing I should have investigated more was the type of feed. My chicks are on crumble and it just poured out every time it was bumped. I have the feeder in the outside run so it’s ok but it defeated the purpose I wanted it for (no waste/spill). I got a crumble that was a little larger and it works but now they don’t seem to be grasping the concept of needing to tap it to eat (vs. it all just falling on the ground to eat).

None of my chickens can use this. They just can't figure it out no matter what I do. I ever tried to stuff raspberries on it to give them the idea, but no dice. They have no idea it is a feeder and they just ignore it. It seems that their little beaks can't get the food out through it, even with crumbles. Please can someone tell me how to train the chickens to use it? Note I had no problem teaching my chickens to use nipple waterers, how to use my steep chicken ramp, or even a Grandpa's treadle feeder was successful with some training.

They are working great. I put them on five gallon buckets. Very little food gets on the floor and it keeps the food clean.

Fabulous! Keeps the feed off the ground, covered and protected from poop and debris. I bought my own metal bucket with a lock-on lid system, and drilled a hole with a circle drill bit. Then I Gorilla-glued the spiral feeder into the bucket and VOILA! So very pleased with this product, and with literally everything I have ever purchased from Premier.

I was excited for this feeder as wasting feed is always a concern. First, we connected it to a flat bottom 5 gallon pail and the first issue was the feed was not moving down into the spiral feeder. So, as we would move the feed down manually it would just fall out into the ground. This was with crumble as recommended. We are planning in trying pellets but we have a few bags of crumble to use up first. The second problem was that not enough feed would fall out and the the hens ended up being hungry. I like to see them all happy to see me at the gate but not because they are hungry. We are still in the progress of trying it out but it was not as easy as excepted, we need to try the pellets and figure out a funnel to keep the feed moving down.
