The PERDIX automatic gamebird feeder allows feed to be provided to wild or released pheasants or partridges 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 your birds. For instance, during cold weather, food requirements by game birds will be higher and therefore the spinner could be set to run for longer to provide additional food.
The feeder can be either hung from a suitable structure using the strong metal handle or mounted to a post using our PERDIX Automatic Game Bird Feeder Post Mount. 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.
Our tests have found that when feeding wheat, approximately 125g is spread when the automatic game bird feeder is set to a one second spin. A further 75g is spread ever second after this. Therefore, when set to a four second spin, 350g of wheat is spread. 100g grams of wheat equals 2000 – 2500 grains.
When feeding wheat and set at a height of 1m above the ground, the Automatic Game Bird Feeder will distribute grains up to a radius of 2 m (6.5ft).
