I use suet in the winter when it's really cold. I just put it on the back porch floor.
I just wanted to add that instead of using cabbage I do the same sort of thing with apples. I use fishing line and tie it tight so it cuts through the apple a little and then hang it. It doesn't last as long and I have to take the line down right away but it sure is fun to watch while they are playing with it!!
Thanks for the WEston price link. We are trying to eat as locally & organically as we can here. We split a whole grass fed cow and organic pig with 3 other families and just signed up for a winter CSA of storage vegs, in addition to freezing as much as we could from our little plot. Thanks for the info.
Somehow a large plastic tent stake ended up in our run. I was going to take it out but, I noticed the chickens like playing with it.
Funny I was just pondering what else they might like to play with. Thanks for the great ideas!
They really enjoyed the Jack-o-Lantern I put in the tractor. I carved off the face and left the lid off, so they could climb right through it. They chowed down!
Has anyone ever tried a forage cake (see link)? I was considering it, but I'm not sure if this is something I want to try.
I hung a cd from fishing line in the coop, it works like a disco ball (they chase the light moving around) and the hens peck at it (their reflection), I think the likely hood of them hanging themselves is about as likely as them drowning in their own water.
That is a good idea, do they ever break it?
i use parrot toys...they are safe for strong parrot beaks...and so, i would assume they are safe for chickens also..
