Why Whee Like Treat Balls
Treat balls are fun toys to have in our cages. They are durable metal cage balls that have openings so food and treats can be put into them. Treat balls can be hung from the top or sides of the cage at various heights. At first whee were startled by the jingling bell on the bottom, but we quickly got used to it. Not only does it provide an entertaining way for us to receive food, but it also motivates us to get some exercise by stretching and reaching for it. Our slaves fill it with whatever fresh greens they have on hand, or if we've already had plenty of greens for the day, with fresh timothy and orchard grass hay.
In the YouTube video, Coppy and Morry demonstrate how we use the treat ball! On this occasion it was filled with baby lettuce, radicchio, and a few dried corn husks.
