Brilliant toy/feeder. Hens soon recognize it and come flying over. Use it to round up the hens to put in their enclosure for when the dog goes out. Easy to clean and use and the hens love it.
I just love this! Luckily, so do my girls! No teaching required, they "got it" from Day One. The daily ritual of "who wants corn?" keeps us all amused for hours! Easy to fill, easy to clean and easy to find in the run! Brilliant!
Our very smart girl, Nuggett, figured this out quickly and loves it! Lots of enjoyment moving the ball around. great idea if you are going to be out for a while, keeps them amused - well until the corn runs out!
Chickens like the ball, think the holes could be a little smaller tho, as limited to what you can put in it.
I have not seen it in action as it is a christmas present. However it was very well packaged and looks good.
It did not take long for the boldest hen to realise that this was a source of extra treats, even less time for her pals to learn from her example. This is low-cost high-return enrichment "toy" for our hens. It is easy to keep clean and robust. The elastic will eventually perish, but at this price it will be affordable to replace.
I bought this for 3 new POL hybrid hens i had recently purchased- one presented signs of an infection a few days after bringing them home so they ended up in quarantine for a few weeks longer than expected. The love this ball even now! Every afternoon I fill it with some corn and they enjoy hours of pushing it around the garden!!! Really would recommend this product!
My 3 POL hybrid girls LOVE this ball!! I bought it as a boredom breaker (as due to bad weather my garden has no grass and is constant mud) they are now in a pen. I fill it with corn of an afternoon and they go mad for it. It provides hours of enjoyment for me and them would recommend this product to everyone.
My 3 hens, known as the 3 Hs (Henrietta, Hepzibah, & Harriet) play with it, scattering the grain. It keeps them busy for hours!
