Description


This Lop Feeder, crafted from galvanized metal, is 5˝" wide, 3" deep, and 6˝" high. The hopper tray extends outward by 3˝", to accommodate blocky lop rabbit heads. Feeder hangs on the outside of the cage for ease of filling, and the hopper slides inside through an opening you cut in the cage wire, saving room inside the cage for the rabbit. Alternatively, our feeders now have hooks on the back whereby they can be attached to the wire inside the cage, eliminating the need to cut the wire, however it does then require more space inside the cage.

Because the hopper is wider than the standard hopper, the manufacturer has added support tabs on each side of the feeder which support the screen - typical of the high quality and attention to detail of Quality Cage Co. (the manufacturer).

Fresh feed is kept clean and constantly available, as the screen mesh bottom lets fines and dust fall out of the feeder. This is important, as a) fines can quickly mold in humid climates, b) unless rabbits are very hungry, they almost invariably refuse to eat the fines, and 3) fines can end up choking the hopper, if not screened, reducing or eliminating access to the feed pellets.

To gauge the size, the 5.5" feeder is more than ample enough to feed a small to medium lop rabbit for 2-3 days, or 2 rabbits for more than 1 day. (Note that adult rabbits should not be free-fed, to prevent obesity.)

See our Standard Feeders, which come in all sizes and have hoppers only 2.5” deep, perfect for most standard rabbit breeds, if your rabbit is not a Lop.
