A friend of mine suggested the perfect treat for chickens for these hot days of summer: frozen corn! I tried it, and my birds love it! I let it thaw just a little bit so that it's not ultra hard, and I hand-feed it to the poor panting birdies out in the shade of the lilac tree. They are so happy! Just like ice cream for chickens! I thought I'd pass this suggestion along to you for the summer. It's perfect for small flocks!
