It’s amazing how quickly the birds flock to the PECKStone! As soon as you set the stone down, the birds run over to it. I think the PECKStone gives them something else to play with and attracts them to peck the stone rather than each other. We’ve been very pleased with our PECKStone experience.”

I’ve noticed that the birds with PECKStones have fuller feathers and seem less aggressive. It provides a distraction from pecking at each other. I prefer PECKStones to be in with the hens shortly after bird placement to prevent pecking before it starts. Egg production is high, and the marketer is happy. Not to mention they are so easy to use. I think they are a really useful tool to raise a humane bird.”
