Christmas Treats for Chickens - ON SALE!!
Flyte so Fancy Boredom Buster® Pecking Rings for Poultry.
Jam-packed with wholegrains, apples and berries, the new rock-hard recipe of the 'Granola' Boredom Buster prolongs pecking time for maximum entertainment.
Great for chickens to prevent boredom and hence feather pecking or aggression among your flock. Each block weighs 550 grams (1lb 3oz) and has a hanging cord.
The Boredom Buster Pecking Block for chickens is made of mixed grains and fruit with a binder to create a tough peck block. If your hens are of a delicate nature you can soften the block by applying a little water.
We have tested it with our own birds (shown in one of these images with two of our Brahma Hens), it is still good even in the rain and they really do seem to love it, but most of all it lasts such a long time.
Made in the UK. Store in a cool dry place and when not in use store in a safe place to avoid insects. Boredom Buster® and Boredom Busters® are trademarks of Flyte so Fancy Ltd.
Composition: Mixed Grains (Kibbled Maize, Whole Wheat, Bruised Barley, Rolled Oats), glucose, natural flavours (mixed berries, apple).
Analytical contents: Crude Protein 6%, Crude Fibre 2%, Crude ash 0.7%, Crude oils: 3.7%, Sodium 0%.
FSF Note: Take care in the hottest months of the year with this product, the direct sunlight can make it soft and sticky so it can attract wasps and ants. Winter months are a great time to give the birds this treat, when there is little else around for them to peck at and the glucose will give them an energy boost.

My girls have been very fed up due to the cold wet weather. They are really enjoying their new found entertainment.
Chickens love it, but had to put in for short periods, otherwise they would have wolfed the lot!
I don’t have one of the original pecker rings for comparison but from memory these seem smaller for the same price.
These are indeed slightly smaller, by about 50g, but they are also cheaper than the previous versions by about 50p
I’ve been buying Boredom Buster pecking rings from Flyte so Fancy for many years. All my hens have always enjoyed them - I provide them with a couple of rings all the year around apart from a few weeks around now when it attracts wasps. It’s very convenient that it comes with a sturdy “rope” to slot through the centre for easy hanging. Over the years I have tried other varieties of peckers/treats but they have been largely ignored!
Waaaay too hard for our girls, unfortunately! They each gave it a couple of pecks but then resolutely gave up - it's currently hanging in the run completely untouched!
Sorry to here that your ladies were not a fan. I know our Brahmas took a couple of days to adapt to the new recipe. For such big birds, they're probably some of the most 'delicate' ladies here at FSF HQ. We found that the blocks themselves softened with a little spray of water and that did the trick - polished the whole thing off in a weekend!
