    I am new to raising my Silkies. I have only had them a couple of weeks. Does anyone know if Silkies will use treat balls? I was thinking of ordering one for my little friends, but unsure if they would be interested in it.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated from other Silkie lovers!

    I think chickens will eat just about anything that wont eat them first. That being said, when you first introduce the treat ball, they'll probably be scared to death of it, my chickens acted like I'd thrown a coon in their run the first time I put a flock block out for them. All it took was one brave chicken to give one curious peck and then they were all over it. So, I say go for it! Good luck!
