    This sounds like a great mix to me. I feed oats and Greek yogurt to my flock 3 or 4 times a week. Bran flakes should be fine too.

    A friend and neighbor of mine, swears that her feeding a warm mash similar to yours, kept her hens laying all winter long, even through the coldest days and nights..

    I'm sure the hens will be soon spoiled however, and expect it all the time. Better buy in bulk..lol
