Our hens love pulling their vegetable leaves out of the Caddi Treat Holder. We love it too - the food is kept off the ground and we can fill it in the dry before taking it out; it's also easy to move about so can be inside or outside the covered Eglu areas.
The holder keeps the food off the ground so the chickens don’t trample on it. I also have one in an aviary which the birds love to feed from.
How did I manage without this for so long? Perfect for stuffing greens in, even a largish apple will sit in the bottom. The girls love it too and weren't frightened of it at all.
My girls love their greens and pulling weeds but loose greens are too difficult for them to eat. This was the perfect solution. I was able to pack quite a bit in there too. At first the girls were nervous because it was swinging a bit. But once they realized it was full of yummy stuff they didn’t care.
The Caddi Treat holder is great-I use it daily for leafy greens-The Pendent Peck Holder broke after the first week-It cracks around the top where you screw the top in, company never acknowledge it broke
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.
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.
