Individual Methods for Feeding
Methods - Device
The feeding methods outlined in this section
require prior preparation in terms of making devices for use by the animals, including
items that must be opened or manipulated to obtain food, frames to hold food items, and
containers that randomly release food such as insects.
||Fine mesh frame, five feet high by
six feet wide firmly fixed to the ground. Branches and herbs, or pre-prepared grass and
straw is woven into the mesh so that the animals must manipulate the food to free it.
||Makes small pieces of browse more
difficult to obtain, requiring the animals to manipulate it with their tongues.
||Time consuming to attach browse to
the grid. Looks unsightly.
||Make a metal grid, with two layers
that can be clamped together with the browse in between, which would be easier to fill.
