well I do...I have turned a flock of good layers into feather wearing piglets! I make the girls a baked seed block and I used: 3 Cups of Hen scratch 1 Cup of whole wheat flour 1/2 Cup flaxseed flour 1/2 Cup grits 1/2 Cup of medium ground cornmeal 1 - 2 Cups of rolled oats 1 TBL of honey Plenty of hot water Optional: wild bird seed, millet, groats, winter wheat berries etc etc. I mixed it all together and poured into well greased baking pans and baked at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours...until it was hard to the touch and browned. the first time I gave them one...they were okay with it and once they figured out what it was....they attacked! Well the second one I gave them...I did not move my hand fast enough and got jabbed several times and received the 'stink eye' from those trying to get to the seed block only to find my hand in the way. Here are the pics to back up this story... I admit that my big girls behave with a bit more restraint than the younger group...but not by much. LOL they grab HUGE chunks and run like the devil away from everyone to eat it alone or be chased, whichever applies at the moment. P.S.: Sorry for the messy looking half of the coop but it is being cleaned and mucked out today following alot of rain of snow being mucked in on feet and boots.
