Homemade flock block recipes - Page 30

post #291 of 301

I'm sorry, I think I missed something. Can you share proportions again? I'm new, and I'd like something I can put out for my chickens and ducks.

Since a Flock Block at TSC is now almost $13 i think i am gonna try making my own. Since i dont have an oven atm it is going to be the lard or gelatin version im thinking.

 

We were in the store Friday night and they had suet blocks on sale for 79 cents so i wanted to get some for the chickens but my SO said no they dont need suet thats for wild birds, it will make them sick. Maybe he will change his mind after i start buying the "flock Block" ingredients lol.

 

Side note: If anyone does use alot of Suet blocks for chickens/wild birds whatever TSC is going to be having a sale on them 12 for $8. Just go to their website and click on the "Sneak Peek" banner on the top of the site then you can view the ads for Turkey day sale and black friday etc....FYI their black friday sale starts on Thursday online only.

Have much to do in the meantime though.  Back fence is done.  Have to make up a makeshift fence that I can do.


Can I wait and wait and wait until Spring of 2010?  Yikes.


Thanks all for being here
There's a guy from cedartown, Ga that has a web site I believe it's www.davidscoops.com
Or it's chicken coops. But I would just google it.

How did the chickens like it? I have been thinking of trying it, but just haven't gotten round to yet

I made 2 different kinds. One savoury and one sweet. They like both but like the sweet one better.

I thought I'd put in my 2¢.

I just made similiar blocks, however, didn't use eggs. I froze the blocks instead of baking. Did you bake because you used eggs or ?
