Where can I purchase gravity feeders (hopper style, solid bottom)?

    Any help or links to sites that carry the solid bottom gravity feeders would be most appreciated! I have located them at Stromberg's, but the shipping is very expensive to Canada.

    This is what I am looking for:

    Scroll down and it's the last style. The Econo feeder....11.5" wide, holds 4.5 lbs of feed.

    * Most any feed store of size would probably have a couple on hand. Mine does and it's really a horse store more than anything else. If yours doesn't stock them, they should be able to order with the info you have. No idea o/l. S/O else might though.

    I'll try with the feed stores again. I didn't have much sucess earlier....maybe a different sales person will be better.

    I do see that online they seem to be marketed as rabbit feeders most frequently. Perhaps the staff will recognize it more if I referred to it as such.

    Thanks for your help.

    When checking at the feed stores/farm supply stores it never hurts to ask the manager if he can order one for you. I got mine at our local farmer's co-op. When I wanted a specific type of chicken feed I couldn't find anyone in our area that stocked it. I asked the manager of the co-op about it and he was glad to order it for me. He now keeps a couple of bags on hand for me. In today's tough economic times alot of stores are willing to go the extra mile to keep/get new customers. And what can you lose by asking right?

    Sometimes they're also referred to as pig feeders.

    You can try Berry Hill, they are in southern ontario but you can shop online.

    I have also seen them at my TSC store and I think they were in the rabbit supply area. HTH
