Thanks goosebaby, those balls are a great idea! I was actually thinking about some rubber tubing I could tie to the inside of their mesh run...you know, like the sort used in scientific equipment??? Seems like it would be tough enough to endure pecking...I noticed they like stringy Hong's because they're always after my laces
Ended up ordering goose harnesess last night and decided to pick up a nibbly toy for them at the same time. Hope it was worth the money and they don't just leave it like they did with the peas i left out for them last night too.
