    Will mixing oatmeal with honey be a good treat?

    I am not sure if honey is okay for chickens to eat. I would suggest giving your chickens a very small amount of honey to see if they like it.

    Why do you want to give your chickens honey?

    Honey in water is a good tonic for sick birds. But they would probably prefer the oatmeal with a tablespoon of Greek yoghurt mixed through.
