Straight-line chain feeding system for roosters or hens

The DuoChain breeder feeding system consists of an entire chain loop in one trough. The feeding system has two different applications: one for space-saving rooster feeding (MaleChain) and the other for additional feed lines for hens (FeMaleChain). Special grills designed for either males or females are utilized depending on which application is needed.

The design of the corners and trough create a space-saving feeding system that comes as one complete feed line. Our Challenger feed chain conveys the feed, and the DuoChain system has flexible mounting options, i.e. in standing position or suspended from the ceiling. DuoChain is a “dynamic duo” system that is simple, efficient and durable. It is also easy to install and maintain.
