    We had 2 heads of cabbage and we put it in our chicken coop and pen, and they loved to peck at it! So its a good idea to put some cabbage heads in the coop for winter, then they will stop pecking each others eyes. [​IMG]

    Great idea!! My flock loves to play cabbage tether ball. It takes them about half a day to gnaw it down to a nub. lol

    I normally tie individual savoy leaves up; so they hang down above the floor - just about head height to make em work for it!

    Hadn't thought of doing it with a full head but will give this a whirl thanks:)

    I got a spinning wire ball to put the girls treats inside for even more hilarious fun. I think it is for a hamster but don't tell my ladies. It attaches to the side of their pen and provides a ton of entertainment for everyone.
