    Today I gave my chickens oat meal. They LOVED it. So what did you feed your chickens today?

    apart from their usual feed, over the last few weeks as teh temperature is dropping and my girls moulting i have been giving them an oatmeal mixture made with milk and yoghurt and black sunflower seeds. today i had some left over bread, so i heated some milk in micro and added the bread, yoghurt and sunflower seeds to it

    they seem to enjoy it, and there is NEVER any left!!!

    i understand that black sunflower seeds help with their feathers and the yoghurt and milk gives them extra protein that they need while moulting

    i think they are looking better for it
