The PERDIX automatic farmland bird feeder allows supplemental feed to be provided up to four times daily via a timed feed spinner. The spinner can be programmed via the digital display to run for up to 20 seconds depending on the demand of food by birds. For instance, during cold weather, food requirements by farmland birds will be higher and therefore the spinner could be set to run for longer to provide additional food. Another advantage of using an automatic feeder is that it can aid in reducing problems caused by rats and other unwanted visitors at night. By setting the timer to dispense just enough food for birds during the day, little will be available for other visitors during the night.
The feeder should be hung from a suitable structure using the strong metal handle. Ideally, the feeder should be at a height where rats (can jump vertically over 1m), badgers and deer cannot reach the spinner.
The spinner is easily attached to the feeder using 3 x M6 bolts (included) and powered using 4 x AA batteries (included). Automatic spinner units can be purchased separately if you wish to fix them to your own buckets, tubs and other suitable containers.
