At night I only leave a treadle feeder in the run. But I do leave one of these alfalfa blocks out in a hanging basket so they can have something nice to peck at in the early morning til I come out with some good stuff. I have three hens and they take 3 months or so to get through a block. I’m glad I discovered these blocks as another boredom buster that works well for me.
My chickens haven’t touched it.
Great peck treat for the hens who seem to like it. I planned on putting it in my hanging treat cage but it’s pretty big so did not fit. Breaking it in half worked but was quite difficult given it is very solidly compressed and has grit throughout- so I had to use a saw.
Ideally you need to use a hanging bag or similar, otherwise spend some time trying to cut it in half. Also it is a solid brick so no way to attach a rope to it to hang by itself.
