    Hi Everyone!

    These recipes are great! However, I was wondering if anyone has ideas or experience with making something like a 'chick stick?' One of those large, rectangular treat sticks that are harder so the chicks can't eat them so fast? My only thought is what I use for dogs, and that is filling a Kong with peanut butter and treats, then freezing it. I don't think my chickies would appreciate frozen treats, tho.

    Ideas?

    I just saw something like this when I was trying to help someone else. There is a website called the chicken chick and she had a hard treat recipe called, Flock block substitute recipe. Not sure if that's what your looking for though.
