    well with holloween over now i went to the store and found popcorn balls for 12 cents each naturally i bought about 50 of them as treats for me

    but i forgot how much mess they are soo i thought hmmm my chickens eat cracked corn ( i know its not the best for them but they eat it there happy and healthy and its cheeeeeeaaap [​IMG] 8 bucks for 50 pounds

    so i thought man i should give one of these to my chickens so i opened it up and tossed it in there .... mannnnnn they loved it nd now i throw one in every day about noon just to give them somethin to play with and well if ya can find them and want a chuckle watching your chickens case/ pick up and peck at this treat then if theres any around still try and get them if not theres a site o found for them they average about 26 cents each but there on back order if ya do some digging around you can find them heres a link so you can see what im talking about t i dont really like this site due to the 50$ min order and the fact that there out of stock ill see if i can find someone whom still has them instock

    i tried feeding my chickens popped popcorn but they didn't seem too impressed [​IMG] maybe if it were all balled up like that, it would seem like a more interesting treat/game.

    Place one of the balls on a string, hang it so it swings freely and watch the fun begin!!
