At first when I opened the box it was daunting but after a few minutes reading the instructions everything was self explanatory.
As far as the nest box goes my hens started laying immediately and and have clean eggs all the time. There’s one or two that come with poo but Atleast they aren’t being pecked or eaten anymore!!!
This is a wonderful addition to my small farm! The adjustable height allows you to adjust for pellet or crumbles, and the design works well to allow enough feed for my small flock without having to take fresh feed out twice a day. It works well to keep the feed off of the ground and clean for my birds.
I like this product, but my chickens are still 50/50 on using it. I'll keep trying to get them to accept it. I did go out and buy a rivet tool to put it together, but they do send additional nuts and bolts to put it together, I just didn't understand what they were for.
Great product good quality. Fairly easy to put to get together. One thing that should be told upfront is that you will need a rivet gun in order to complete the assembly.
Feed stays dry and like it because feed isn’t wasted all over the ground
The Compacta feeder with the rain shield is a great feeder for my small, mixed flock (chickens and ducks). Openings are large enough for ducks and the rain shield helps to keep the feed dry. My chickens liked it right away, even though I had been feeding in pans before.
After I contacted Urban-egg, who were very helpful, I finally got the cap on right and the drinker works great!
I love it outside missing an arm to install the perch for the nest box.
Awesome looking once put together. Came with instructions for a 3 hole and a short video of the 10 hole but it had legs. Other than that, it is fairly simple to put together
Hands down best nesting box ever. Shipped quick and was so easy to put together. My hens love it.
I bought one of these as I had an egg eating problem and my eggs were very dirty. This solved both problems and my chickens love it. The eggs are clean and away from eating chickens. I like it so well I bought a second one. They are easy to assemble and light weight enough that even I can carry it. They are very sturdy and will last a very long time to come. I sat mine on cinder blocks and it works very well. I cannot tell you how happy I am with these nest's!! I highly recommend them to even small chicken owners!!
I was at first concerned about small bends and slight damage in shipping, but once riveted together and fully assembled (about a two hour job) I'm quite pleased with the end product, as are my chooks; most of them took to it the first day.
The design is well thought out. For the cost, an excellent product.
I've noticed less waste because you can close and open the amount of food that flows. Having meat chickens waste is my biggest problem this feeder helps.
They rubber stopper took a few times to get right, but other than that. Now I get it in right first time everytime.😉 It is a fabulous waterer.
I am hoping my hens will get used to it. I have another brand and they love it. This one requires sticking their head farther in to eat. I like the idea they can't make much mess but so far very reluctant to use it...even with it weighted open.
it works like it is supposed to and the chickens can't roost on the top.
As a Colorado Cottage Law egg seller, I'm happy that these were approved by CSU for egg sales! They are top shelf dishwasher safe and easily sanitized with food grade restaurant spray. Reuse many times and save money, reduce waste!
Also, our son likes using them like giant legos that hold his treasures....
We've had this installed for two months, and it's fabulous! We had problems with traditional watering buckets due to uneven ground and hanging buckets wouldn't balance (water would drain right out). This system solved all of our problems! Easy, easy to use!
This was a perfect addition to our River System Incubator! Life gets busy, and the humidifier attachment kept our incubator perfect! Well worth the money!
We had an egg eater problem in our flock. This absolutely solved our problem! Hens didn't mind switching over at all! Easy to install in our coop, it fit into our preexisting space for nests.
We have this system and can absolutely testify that it is the best! It's so easy to use! We're currently celebrating our third hatch with it since purchasing earlier this year!
Company was great to work with. Easy fill back saver. Highly recommend
It is perfect and was delivered very quickly, thanks!
This is the best incubator....EVER! So easy to set up, maintain, and well made. Great product, well priced for what you get and worth every penny.
Great Customer Service
