So, I saw some videos on the internet with hanging cabbage heads that chickens were going crazy over.
So, I decided to try it out for both my small flock of three silkie chickens and my other small flock of three larger chickens.
You can see how the hanging cabbage for chickens looks hanging from the top and the bottom in the pictures directly below.
Sadly, none of the chickens showed much interest in the cabbage. The Silkies pecked a bit at pieces of cabbage on the ground. The bigger chickens pretty much completely ignored everything all together.
At any rate, it was a pretty inexpensive experiment, since I had the string and hooks at home and cabbage is fairly cheap.
It’s pretty easy to make the hanging cabbage ball if you want to try it out. And, if you do, hopefully you have better luck than we did.
