This is kind of based on another thread that got derailed, but I was wondering how many of you cook for your chickens, and what you treat them with? Thanks to this site I tried cooking them some oatmeal and they really liked it, so on days that I am off I have been fixing them something simple to warm them up a bit. So far I have tried oatmeal with applesauce mixed in and sometimes with molassess or honey. Today I found a box of barley in the cabinet that I had bought for some new dog treat I was making and figured the chickens might like it so I cooked it up and it was a HUGE hit. Tomorrow is going to be lentils or pasta (they were on sale!). I am on an ex-battery hens forum and the lentils were highly recommended so I thought I'd give them a try.
