Sludge is a nutritious and delicious snack for chickens. It looks pretty gross, but my hens are addicted to it! My boyfriend actually calls it "really bad cow diarrhea". Today, I'll show you how to make it!
-3 cups of your chickens normal feed
- 1 cup of water
-An old cake pan or shallow tray
1. Put all ingredients into blender and mix.
2. Add more water if needed, the sludge should be the consistency of a Starbucks Frappuchino (or if you're unfamiliar with Starbucks, a smoothie)
3. Pour into cake pan or tray and serve!
