This Digital timer example has 8 daily on-off cycles giving you up 8 feed cycles per day or any day or group of days of the week.  It has a manual on-off push button, countdown timer, random cycles, etc...  It features "second" programming which you could use to program very small snacks between the main programmed meals.  You could also use the timer to override the feeder's portion controller to use up to 8 "different" portion sizes per day.  It will keep exact time even during power outages due to its internal battery back-up feature (no need to re-program).  This timer is a perfect companion for your Super FeederŪ. Of course lots of other timers can also be used. Click on timer picture to take you to the store and see our whole list of timers offered.
