Chore-Time's REVOLUTION® Poultry Feeder Offers Innovative Feed Control Features
MILFORD, Indiana U.S.A. – Whether you are raising broilers or turkey poults, Chore-Time’s unique REVOLUTION® Poultry Feeder offers you management flexibility with a number of innovative feed control features. The REVOLUTION Feeder is the latest in Chore-Time’s industry-leading history of automated broiler pan feeding advances.
The heart of Chore-Time’s innovative REVOLUTION Feeder is an entirely new technology for broiler feeder pans: the Rotary Gate. Unlike conventional feeder pans with flood windows, the Rotary Gate provides full control of both flood and final feed levels without needing to depend on pan height or gravity to operate.
The Rotary Gate is a simple mechanism based upon two cones: one inside and one outside. The outside cone position stays fixed. The inside cone rotates to open and close the pairs of openings on the Rotary Gate. An actuator system controls the amount of gate opening and the flood level on dozens of feeders with one adjustment.
The rotary action of the gate provides both sure adjustment and positive operation to reduce feed bridging and inconsistent flood levels. On the floor or in the air, the Rotary Gate gives the REVOLUTION Feeder complete control of both flood and final feed levels.
Chore-Time’s REVOLUTION Feeder helps turkey producers to capture the attention of turkey poults by showing them a cascade of feed falling from high up on the feeder. The feeder then offers poults easy access to a big flood of feed while still making use of its feed-saving features. Unlike conventional flood feeders, the filling action of this revolutionary new Chore-Time feeder is highly visible for attracting birds to the pan.
The poultry feeder’s unique combination of shallow pan and distinctive, ergonomically sculpted grill, along with anti-rake fins, all work together to keep more feed in the pan. As a result, the pan is both deep and shallow so even small birds can conveniently help themselves to an abundant amount of feed from the pan’s perimeter while also keeping feed waste to a minimum.
Birds also eat comfortably from the pan’s perimeter because of the feeder’s “chicken-friendly” design. The imaginative scalloped grill of the feeder was crafted to naturally and efficiently fit the rounded shape of both young and growing birds and to provide easy feed access.
