WHAT TO DO WITH a BORED HEN -- NUTRITIOUS TOYS FOR HER Majesty
In our pursuit of ever more products for the poultry world we have found this lovely POULTRY PASTRY. It is widely used in the equine world so we thought it might be suitable for our chickens.
It is a completely natural, solid block of tasty nibbles of wheat, seeds, fruit and
molasses (hence you will find it is very sticky to touch). Molasses was used,
according to my old poultry keeping book, in poultry feed in days gone by, and is
said to help the hens digestion. Let us know what you think, hang it up in your
poultry run and see what happens ...

They used to have a cookie, a pecking ring they call it. Also called BOREDOM BUSTER!
You might have to change the name. Call yours the NUMMY CRUMBY HENPECKING RING? OR HEN HEAVEN, ROOSTER COOKIES. or POULTRY PASTRIES. You could make them a dozen at a time like cookies. The Brits charge 10$ each and sell the bracket for extra and people ...errr rather HENS line up to pay it and the owners stand there swooning and cooing at their babies pecking and making THE DONUT swing, don't they. Oh, you know they do.
For Poultry only; This size wouldn't last long for a horse
