    This is embarrasingly ridiculous, but I cannot figure out how y'all hang this head of boredom-killing cabbage??[​IMG]

    Are there any other types of treats you hang & how do you do it?

    This is probablly so simple & I just cant see the forest for the trees.........

    I put it in the remains of an old fishing net, not sure what others do. Sometimes I give them a suet cake, but that just goes in a suet feeder that is wrapped around the lowest ladder wrung to the roost.

    Cut a hole through middle. Thread some string through it and tie it to something.


    Have a long nail or metal spike about chicken high. Stab the cabbage on the nail or spike.

    Apple corer, shoot a hole, grab a 1" spade bit and chuck it in a drill. Try #1 first.

    I have some super long screw drivers, so I use one the one footer screw drivers to stab a hole through the middle, thread a nylon rope through it, and then tie it off at the bottom and hang it to a cup or eye hook in the top of the run or coop. [​IMG]

    i made my daughters sacrifice their old and forgotten soccer ball kicker has a mesh netting at the end where you put the soccer ball and a long rope adjustable length that they hold onto to kick it. i just tied to to a support cross bar in their run. it works perfectly.
