    "no more feather pecking or egg eating and I..."
    Pros - It lasts a very long time and the birds enjoy pecking at it together-makes for interesting viewing
    Cons - not large enough
    Whenever I need to go away for a few days and don't want someone screwing up my management routine I put out a few foragecakes and fill the waterers to the rim. By the time I get back they've pounded it into an unrecognizable lump. I just rinse it off thoroughly and return it to a feeding bowl and they return to it in haste. The droppings of my birds is drier in consistency and easier to maintain and the birds stop destructive feather picking and egg eating.
