Product Review: Hentastic Treats Boredom Busting Chick Sticks


Boredom is always a concern with chickens being cooped up during long, cold, dreary winters. Boredom can lead to pecking and bullying, so I work hard to keep my chickens busy. I'm always looking for new ways to amuse them, so imagine my delight when Hentastic® Treats contacted me and asked if I would like to try out some of their products.

Hentastic® Treats are exciting because in addition to including flock favorites such as sunflower seeds and mealworms, they also are jam-packed with nutritious herbs such as mint, parsley, oregano, garlic, ginger and fennel. (The benefits of the various herbs for your flock can be found HERE.) 


I already add lots of fresh and dried herbs to my chickens' diet, so my chickens are accustomed to the taste and gobbled up the Foraging Feast pellets without hesitation! 


But the real hit was the Chick Stick Hanging Feeder.  Shaped like a log with holes in it that you slide the sticks through, it proved to be our flock favorite. In fact, Violet and Annie enjoyed it so much, Annie went off to find the rest of the girls to tell them to come try it too!



I suspended the holder from the shepherd's crook I normally have in the run for my lettuce pinata baskets, slid the Chick Sticks into the slots and then waited. Of course there was a bit of normal suspicion from the girls as they eyed the new addition. They circled and paced, pretended not to be interested, but all it took was for one to give the stick an exploratory peck and they all dove right in.




It didn't take long for them to empty the feeder. I'll be filling it with more sticks, comfortable knowing they contain Omega-3, 6 and 9 for healthier chickens and more nutritious eggs, as well as added calcium for strong eggshells. Bottom line, both the chickens and I give Hentastic® Treats two thumbs up!

Visit Hentastic® Treats to buy these and more nutritious, delicious herbal treats for your chickens.

  2. This would be great for those rainy days when they don't want to get out and kick around in the compost pile. I also left all the leaves that fell in their run because we all know they love to turn over an old leaf. All the leaves pile up on one side and I will through some scratch around in the leaves for them to find. I throw them scratch on the late afternoon to help them keep warm at night. Also the snacks are not overpriced like a lot of places and they seem much more healthy.

  7. A real spell caster that bring back my husband and restore my marriage??

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks......

  9. I finally received my chick sticks a few weeks ago, since they were on back order and my girls don't want anything to do with them! They do like the foraging feast pellets though. Still, I was so excited for them to try the chick sticks and thought it would be perfect for them to peck at during the winter months. Funny how they have their own particular tastes and preferences.

  10. My girls love, *love*, LUUURVE those hentastic things! One of them (Mookie) does a woody woodpecker impression when I hold out the pellets in my hand (ow!).
    The trouble with the pecky stick, and in fairness I only have tried the big ones that sit in a stand rather than the multi-stick log, is that they devour it like creatures possessed. They go mental, it's not dissimilar to me with a bottle of wine and a chocolate bar at the end of the working week...
    Still, it can't be good for them to yum up that much treat all in one sitting too often, so how much do you give to them? I've been rationing them to one stick a week, which means only one afternoon a week of pecky fun.

  16. My name is Debra Jaime and here is a testimony on what Dr. Wakina has done for me. I have been seeing my X for the past 4years, we have been off and on in our relationship, he doesn’t trust me because his heart is so damaged from his previous relationship. I thought that I have found my soul mate when we first met, but I found out that he doesn’t love me the way I do because of his past experience. He tries to get close to me and then pullout and keep on contacting his X’s which made me have doubts about our future. He keep making excuses and gradually withdrawing himself. I love him so much and his parents love me too, they told me that I am the best person that he has ever had. I know that he has been hurt and unhappy man, but I want to help him. He is living in bondage and always troubled before we broke-up. I sourced for help until I was told to contact Dr. Wakina. I explained all to Doc. why he should bring him back. Thanks to Doc. for confirming my request and seeing that we are perfect match before casting the spell on us. It’s all good now and he is back after the spell. I don’t know how much I can thank this great Doc but I hope this testimony can change someone life for good. Contact him via his email: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
