    I was browsing chicken treats on amazon, and there is just so many! I would love to know your favorites, and what you think is the most value for the money.

    For economics I think BOSS (Black Oil Sunflower Seeds) make a pretty good treat. They may not like them as much as certain treats - like meal worms - but men sure like the seeds and they aren't too spend.

    Thanks for the feedback redsoxs! I want to teach this batch of chicks to come when called, so I am looking for the perfect, and affordable, treat.

    I have to agree .. hands down .. mealworms!

    We should, but do not, produce our own; I really do not need more critters to take care of and working full time, we are time poor so we order live ones online.

    We keep them in a blue ice cream container and I swear if anyone walks into our garden and then out again with a blue ice cream container, they will have five chickens in tow!

    As shortgrass mentioned, they are not cheap but in mine and apparently the girls opinion, the best chicken treat … closely followed by watermelon [​IMG]
