Based on your feed and recommended Regulator-Disk opening, select one Regulator-Disk to use with your feed. Note: If you find our recommended opening too small or too large, change to another disk. You can also make your own disk with your desired opening to use with PECk-O-MATIC.

Securely hang your pail using the Pail-Hanger ( or Pail-Holder or Pail-Stand sold separately) so that the bottom of the pail is at least 14" above floor level and insert the tube end of the Feeder-Funnel from inside the pail. When properly inserted, this Feeder-Funnel should seat tight against the inside wall of the pail with the entire tube end of the funnel sticking out through the bottom hole.

Insert the Catch-Dish from the long end of the Trigger-Rod and lock it at desired height using Catch-Dish-Lock by lightly pressing together two open ends, pass the Trigger-Rod thru the holes, and release.

To test your feeder setup, put two cups of feed into the pail while keeping the Trigger-Rod somewhat at the center of the Regulator-Disk. Then wiggle Catch-Dish to make the Trigger-Rod oscillate and see small quantity of feed is dropping. Change the Regulator-Disk to increase/decrease quantity of the released feed. (See instruction below to change the Regulator-Disk).

To train your birds, put one cup of feed in the Catch-Dish and see how quickly they learn.

Instruction to change Regulator-Disk

To change the Regulator-Disk, remove the Catch-Dish-Lock and Catch-Dish and pull out the Trigger-Rod. Repeat Step 6, 7, and 8 with the newly selected Regulator-Disk.

Instructions to use with smaller pails

You can use PECk-O-MATIC kit with smaller pail if you skillfully and carefully cut the Feeder-Funnel to fit inside your smaller pail.
