My hen gobbles up most anything. These she will pick out of her food and literally throw around the room when I use them as garnish. My only other bird, a peahen, is blind and acts like she grabbed a gross pebble. I nees to try soaking these in warm water but considering I have never had poultry truly turn their noses up this bad? I don't have high hopes.
I have been feeding the ultrakibble to my peafowl for many years. Peas need more protein than chickens. I also use it to help get my birds to take food from me. Its been hard for me to find this locally since Covid so I am so happy I can order it from Chewy along with the food for my greyhounds.
My chickens love other treats from this brand so I thought I'd give this a whirl for variety's sake. Big fail and waste of $ for me. The chickens wouldn't touch it. Like they really hated it and I tried introducing it several different times, by hand, on the ground, in a foraging toy, etc. Hard pass every time. I heard someone suggest making a mash out of it, which I wish I had thought of before I threw it out. But these are really hard little treats and I did not buy them because I was looking for a high-maintenance snack, I will not be repurchasing.
My birds LOVE Ultra Kibble. It is their favorite moment of the day. My assorted flock of Quail, Bantams, and Large Fowl all eat it with ease. It produces the most beautiful feathers, combs, and wattles you probably will ever see! TIP for picky eaters: Method One (All seasons) If your Chickens(Does not work well for quail)won't eat Ultra Kibble, try soaking it in water or whole milk with some of their regular feed until soft. Then blend/mix/smoosh with a spoon so that it is well mixed. Feed as a treat. 90% of pet chickens will gulp this down without hesitation. Then gradually phase out the other food, then the mashing, then the soaking. Method Two (Not if it is cold outside) Also, to introduce unwilling non laying birds to Ultra Kibble, provide as the only food for 1-2 days. Try soaked, and/or mashed if unwilling to eat by the end of the first day. If they still won't eat it, feed regular for 2-4 days then repeat the process. Hope this helps!
Well I have finally found something my chickens don't like. They nibbled at them for a minute but a day went by and the kibble is still sittingin their treat dishes. Better to just stick with the cackleberry for extra nutrients and mealworms for protein.
I'm beginning to think my chickens are very spoiled and finicky. They liked this treat okay but pass it over quite often.
I have a 31 member Silkie flock of hens and roos and they go nuts over this stuff. I mix it in with their food year round, it's great extra protein, especially in the winter when I use more of it thinking they need extra goodies to stay warm in the cold snowy months. I mix it in with their mini-pellets and they go nuts picking out all the little brown balls. They all love it!
My mixed flock loves this Ultrakibble. I mix it with scratch grain and they eat it right up. I use it to boost nutrition in the winter months and it provides an excellent source of clean energy for my birds. I would highly recommend.
Guinea fowl love this treat. So happy to find this product in a large size.
I am always looking for some new treats for my chickens! I came across this and a few of the reviews seemed ok, so I purchased it. I have Rhode Island Reds. They aren't picky in the least bit, but they will not touch this. The texture is hard (like a hard dog or cat food) and they did not seem to like that, so I tried to soak the kibble treats in water to soften them, and still, wouldn't touch them. Mixed it in with some of their mealworms... nope! Weren't having it! Maybe a better treat for a different type of bird, rather than a chicken. ((Picture shows their excitement for a treat but a disappointment when finding out what it was! Haha.))
