    Is it ok to give my chickens the hanging seed blocks for parrots and wild birds? Figure the wild bird one would be ok as it's just seeds and honey.
    Just thought it would be a fun boredom buster for my chickies.
    Thoughts?

    Go go for it, just be sure to provide them with grit so they can "chew" it (if they aren't on the ground already). And, don't be surprised if they're scared to death of it at first :)
    Good luck!

    You can. I'd look for something like a Flock Block, though, as those parrot treats are bound to be spendy. And I'm cheap.
