    How many treats can I give my hens a day?

    Depends on how much you give, what kind of treat and the ratio of treat:hen. Most folks throw down something little each day just for kicks and giggles.

    I go over after dinner and give them something every day. I love when they come running to the fence when I come up with food and just sit there and wait for me to throw it in [​IMG]

    Just for kicks and giggles I like to tie a head of lettuce at the top of the cage in my run and let it hang. The chickens love to peck and play with it.

    Supposed to be no more than 10% of their daily intake by weight... Allthough mine get much more than that and everybody is just fine. It really depends on what they get for treats.
