What do you give.....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

your girlies for supper on cold winter nights.  I would like to give my girls a variety without having to buy a huge sack of something that lasts forever. I only have five chooks at the moment!! I am in the UK so winter nights aren't that cold, at the moment that is.  Thank you in advance for your replies. :pop

I take some of their normal ration, a handful of scratch, a handful of sweet feed, a couple handfuls of rolled or quick cooking oatmeal, add warm water wait a minute while it soaks up the water than feed, you could add some other things like raisins, canned corn or peas, chopped fruit, applesauce, cottage cheese, yougurt, anything your chickens like as treats.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

They have 20% feed all day, get some scratch sometime during each day and a treat a couple times a week.

 

Dry, well ventilated but draft free coop and their usual daily balanced nutrition is all they need to 'stay warm'.

 

What more would they need? 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
