We did not forget the chickens and guinea hens on Christmas! Dad got them a huge bag of their favorite meal worms for a treat, and I got them two treat ball toys. I wanted to be sure they would really like them (they are small and at $5 each I didn’t want to get carried away in case they weren’t interested), and now that I know they do I’ll probably get at least a couple more to help keep them entertained this winter. All you do is fill the little ball with food or treats (I used sunflower seeds for the first time), and as they peck at it and it rolls around, the treats fall out! Who knew birds would play with these too, right? 🙂
I left them to it, and by the time I went back outside, they had rolled across the yard (the frozen ground was perfect for these) and were empty. Looks like I’ll be back at Tractor Supply to get some more!
