    i have bought them twice. i guess there ok . first one they didnt really get what it was and the second went kinda fast. i like to compare them to a suet cake. if i was going somewhere for a couple days i would want one. they are hard and it takes them a min. to get started on them. at least thats my experince

    i have one almost gone now. They seem to enjoy it. i've had a few days this winter all my latches froze and i couldn't get in the pen to fill up there feeder and at least they had something to eat till i get to town and get propane for my torch.
