    You know those hanging chicken blocks/suets you can buy at feed stores? I want to make my own, and I already have a good recipe from Fresh Eggs Daily, but it requires organic coconut oil, which costs an arm and a leg around here! Can I use vegetable shortening instead? Would it be okay for them to eat? Thanks in advance! :)
