Feed is first distributed to a buffer in the top of each pan. When all buffers are filled, the system opens and delivers the feed to the birds. The coin chain system prevents demixing of feed and the distribution of small portions keeps birds from selective eating. These features optimize the uniformity in your flock, since all portions of feed contain an equal amount of each ingredient. The adjustable ring on the female pans prevents males from eating with the females.
The feeding pan for rearing birds is based on the same principles as the pan for adult birds. The grill design prevents young chicks from staying in the pan, and gives each bird an equal feeding space.
The Vencotrough is a robust chain feeding system for breeder hens. It is equipped with a winching system. By winching the trough, you create more space for birds to mate and optimize the accessibility of the nests. The distribution of feed takes place when the troughs are winched. The large capacity of the trough facilitates fast distribution. Once the feed is distributed, the trough is lowered and the birds can start eating thus providing all birds feed access at the same time. The grill on top of the trough prevents males from eating with the females.
