    I know these are silly, but I think my daughters would love them. Has anyone used them? My concern would be them pecking each other while trying to get the charm. [​IMG]
    I'm getting 3 breeds and just 2-3 of each, so it's not like I "need" them.

    h these are way cute!! I agree with you tho, what if the chicks start pecking at the emblems. Maybe do a search on the Net to see of any problems like that have surfaced with this product!!
    So cute!

    I love these. Think they'd be okay to use except the ones with red on them. Nipple waterers are red for a reason. Chickens apparently love to peck red things.

    Personally, I wouldn't use them....why risk walking into your coop one day and seeing a couple of your hens with wounds on their feet because you thought something was cool? [​IMG] Chickens are curious about most anything...and they scratch and peck to satisfy that curiosity.

    That's my opinion. But, you're the guardian of your flock so it's your decision.

    Best wishes,
