Fun cabbage game for your birds!
  1. Thesweetbirdsflock
    One of our girls favorite treats is a hanging cabbage. They get scared of it at first, but then they get used to it and love it!!!

    What you need-
    relatively long piece rope
    One smallish cabbage (green or red)

    How to-
    Tie the end of the rope in a knot around the end of the nail. Push the nail with the knot into the center of the hard white part of the cabbage. Tie the other end of the rope to the roof of your coop and let them peck at it! It’s good to put it around eye level with them. They will love to peck at and watch it swing around and then peck it again! It’s a fun game for them! In the picture it shows half a cabbage. We did that because those are our pullets so they are smaller and there’s only two of them. 59D4297C-0E39-470D-9B45-EEABCBE0332A.jpeg

    We do this with all sorts of goodies ... cabbage, cucumbers. We've even hung corn on the cob by pulling back the husk and tying the string around the top. We've also used a wire hanging basket to hang cauliflower. They loved it!

    Coming straight to the point, supported by a good picture. A quick reader for the breakfast coffee.
