What are your favorite cold weather treats to feed your flock?
I make them oatmeal (served warm of course) and sometimes rice with milk warmed up before they roost
I will try this tomorrow evening! what about for the morning when its cold?
I gave mine warm oatmeal with blueberries. They picked out the blueberries and left most of the oatmeal. That was morning. In the evening I gave them some "Harvest Delight Poultry Treat". Kinda like scratch but more nutritious. Has carrots, peanuts whole grains tomatoes, flaxseed and sunflower seeds. Oh, and raisins.
After the snow comes, I add green feed to their diet, to make up for their lost forage. They get wheat grass, an assortment of green sprouts or some alfalfa at various times. I also give them insects or worms when I can, either red worms from the worm bin or mealworms. I give a little sunflower seed all year and a bit of scratch grain in the winter.
warm oatmeal or warm unseasoned polenta. I think the polenta is their favorite.
I just cooked up a huge pumpkin. I'll be sharing it between our dog and the girls, who will get on cold mornings.
This morning it was 30 drgrees. Mine got warm oatmeal with scrambled eggs and milk. They are pigs! Ate every drop.
I make a big pan of cornbread but I add a can of pumpkin, lots of eggs, milk and even applesauce to the mix befor I bake it, they devour it. I warm it up in the microwave in the morning and serve it warm~
I also feed oatmeal mixed with scrambled eggs on cold mornings, a little scratch grains before they roost at night~
Warm scrambled eggs cannot be beat.
