Hanging coconut treat field notes

preparing a coconut as a treat for chickens

Coconuts from the store have
a groove cut through the middle.

First thing to do is drain
the juice and drink it.

Banging on the groove with a
hammer, turning a bit and banging some more is one way of splitting it
into two even pieces. My first attempt only cut through the outer
shell. Next time I’ll bang harder. It was easy to fix with a hand saw.

Making a hole in the outer
shell requires a drill. Installing a loop of stiff wire creates a pivot
point and also makes it easier to replace a
out coconut
