    It's fine, but not necessary. They'll love it and it' won't hurt them at all.

    Today I went out workout any and they all kept pecking at this oatmeal dish. Too funny. Guess what? I came in and made some ;-). Mt theory is it warms them up after a cold night and gives them fuel to burn all chilly day. This may not be accurate but they have become oets. Heck I cook u venison
