The hens seem to need to 'tug' to eat their weeds and this holder satisfies the way yhey eat. Saves having to tie the bundle of greens to the mesh.
This is brilliant, to be honest....I had tried to go cheap and find or make something similar, but ended up ordering it from Omlet. At first sight, the four chickens were deathly afraid of it as it swung back and forth like the sword of Damocles, but eventually they learned how to time their movements and grab at whatever greens I had happened to fill it with....the pinata that never breaks....my chickens tend to fancy kale (why is this cut and grow vegetable so expensive at the supermarket????)...with these treats, they haven't even begun to show an interest in worms....
Love this for all the 'scratch and dent' veggies from the garden.
Makes them last longer, keeps them clean and is a fun way for the chickens to stay engaged.
we i loved that they were easy to fill and use, the girls just loves them cause they get goodies !! nicely made, easy to fill and clean thank you Omlet
Even though my chickens showed no interest in this treat holder, even when filled with delicious treats, I found that the birds love it. It has certainly proved to be a greater success with birds.
Our girls absolutely love it! We put apples, greens, corn on the cob in and they gobble it up. Our hens are no longer bored and eat food in the holder that they won't touch otherwise. It's a win win for them and us.
Our chickens love this. It's a great idea because the food doesn't get wasted because they only peck when they want it; (which happens to be until it's all gone) but our chickens are very greedy!
We all love these, the treat holder keeps the girls entertained for ages & they love pecking at the corn peck holder. I love watching them use these & would highly recommend these.
