    My 3 hens are really loud first thing in the morning and I am afraid they are disturbing the neighbors. I usually give them some greens or BOSS to shut them up. That got me thinking - would an automatic fish food despenser work to despense BOSS?

    What do you guys think?

    I think the only way to know is to try it.

    Maybe give it a trial run when you can watch it - like the afternoon - before setting it up for a morning try.

    Lixit makes chicken toy balls that work with BOSS. You could toss the ball in after the went to bed, and they'd find the filled ball in the morning. It might give them something to do until you get up.

    Quote:I am trying to find this ball you are speaking of. Can you post a link? I have this same problem and the ball solution may be a genius plan. My Delaware thinks she needs to talk to everyone in the morning: the birds, the trees, the sky, the grass!
