Never mind and Thanks anyway as I found this with a couple searches......
I brew my own beer and my chickens love the spent grain. I bag it in 1 gallon freezer bags and keep it refrigerated or freeze it. During the hot Texas summer, I would cut the bag off a big ball of spent grain. It was a big grain Popsicle for my 4 birds. See the birds in action below.

How many do you have in your flock now, ? Love your video..
