    2c scratch,
    1 cup crumble,
    1/2 c sunflower seeds,
    1 cup old fashioned oats,
    1/2 c wheat bran,
    1/2 c oil,
    1/2 c molasses,
    three eggs....
    I feed a nonlayer ration so I also tossed in about 1/2 c oyster shell (planning to leave out for nonlaying flocks). Baked at 325 for 30 minutes but the thicker round one (was stuffing last bit of mix in that one, lol) probably needed a little longer as it feels slightly soft.

    Tons of options for subbing ingredients....endless possibilities

    I do all kinds of combinations. A fav amongst them is cottage cheese mixed with scratch, bird seed, a few fruits (mine especially like watermelon, cantaloupe, berries and bananas) chopped, and a small amount of baby food fruit or applesauce. They also LOVE their greens daily. I pick grass and weeds for them as they are enclosed in a run. They also love fruits and/or veggies mixed in plain yogurt. And on and on . .. .
