Our wheat supply is , like I suspect many others, a fairly mixed lot with plenty of chaff in it that seems to be designed to block spring feeders.
We introduced tray feeders a couple of years ago and this resulted in a lot less work clearing springs of bits of wheat stalk etc., a more consistently available supply of feed, less issues with badgers and squirrels, and generally less hassle.
This summer I converted the rest of the feeders from their original springs to trays.
Preparing for the poults to arrive next week I noticed that the specifically purchased tray feeders are lower than the converted ones.
Does anyone please know
The ideal height off the ground for a tray / pan feeder ( height ground to pan)?
The maximum height off the ground for a tray / pan feeder ( height ground to pan)?
I have a feeling I might have to chop a bit off the legs of the converted feeders.
These feeders are for pheasants from 8/9 week old through to the end of the season.
Thanks in advance.
