I‘ve done this before – offered my chickens a cabbage to play with – but this year we have a jungle gym for them in their run and it has a built-in cabbage hanging pole. I know they are cold and bored, so I strung up a head out there and an hour later it was already half gone.
This play structure was my husband’s idea and who’d have known that they would love it so to have a platform to jump onto? Perhaps after we get some snow drifts they’ll love it even more. They sure don’t like walking in the snow.
