with or without the shell?
With....mine love them as a treat.
doesn't matter, I buy black oil in shell and feed this time of the year as they molt. As with any whole grain make sure they have access to grit.
The in shell are definately less expensive.
Thank you. I did read they were especially beneficial for moulting hens so I wanted to try some.
They eat the whole thing.
Mine eat the whole thing. I wish my goats would eat them. They just toss them on the ground. The man goats now have a lovely stand of black oil sunflowers coming up outside their door.
Well, this hadn't occured to me, but I have a stand of sunflowers that I grow for pleasure.....Can I give them the old heads? Are they the same?
Toss in the head or better yet tie them up so they have to jump a tad to get them. I do this and it gives them something to do...keeps them busy.
I always take several hand fulls and plant in the garden and in certain spots in the flower beds just for the purpose of feeding my hens.
Hey, I think I just saved some $$. Thanks all.
racking them is half the fun and they make good grit too.
