Partridge Photo Shoot in North Devon!

….not the usual kind of shoot associated with Partridge!

Last week we were fortunte to have the opportunity to shoot some photos of our galvanised Partridge Feeders in use on a shoot in North Devon.

As the Gamekeepers amongst you will know and appreciate, the young partridge need weening off the initial tube feeders and onto another type of feeder.  This is a gentle process which enables the young birds to become familiar and move onto the larger feeders they will be using after release from the rearing pens.

The photos below were taken after just a couple of days in the rearing pens and we since understand the weening is going well.

Our very satisfied customer said the side extensions and restrictors are invaluable for keeping the pheasants out as partridge food is more than double to price of pheasant food so he doesn’t want the pheasants getting at it after release.

Whilst the galvanised Dymond Pheasant Feeders are designed for use in release pens and open environments, where they can protect the feed from livestock and pests, they are also effective for use in rearing pens.  Their large capacity, sturdy structure and ability to protect feed from the elements are as useful in the pens as they are in the open.

We were fortunate to capture photos of some 5 week old pheasant poults feeding from a feeder within a pen, and enjoying the shade it provided outside the brooder hut.

Coming Soon……We are excited about the introduction of the new Dymond half-size galvanised pheasant feeder into our bird feeder range.
 With 1 metre total feed area, this mini feeder is lighter to move but will not blow over when empty. Its half the length and capacity of the full feeder but the same width to allow double-sided feeding access. 
It is as robust and long-lasting as the full-size feeder (2m feed area) and protects the feed from waste and spoilage in exactly the same way.  Its just a bit smaller!
The very first production was collected by a local shoot today.
