    My hens' birthday is coming up in February and I wanted to do something special for them like making some sort of treat.

    I was wondering if you have any suggestions or treats you give your chickens on special occasions.

    Depending what season it is, they'd love a hot oatmeal mash in the winter, or maybe a few fresh tomatoes in the summer. Or some extra 'person' time. Or in the winter, dig a hole in the snow in there run. They also like sunflower seeds that would generally give to wild birds.

    I think I might do warm oatmeal. I gave them cold oatmeal a while ago and they like that.

    Warm oatmeal?

    Did you hatch them yourself?
