    Anyone tried it?
    I'm anxious to get to the chick room to see how they like it, I'll probably mix some crumbles in there as well, it's my new creation, mwuahaha.

    You know that doesn't sound to bad.

    It smells really good [​IMG] if it was vanilla yogurt I'd eat it myself [​IMG]
    I'm going to wait till "outside time" until I give it to them, so I don't know how they like it still.

    Now, if I was going to eat it I'd cut up cantaloupe drizzle vanilla yogurt and maybe top it off with some granola. Yummy!!
     
  5. Oh yeah! Our girls LOVE their yogurt. I gave them some cantaloupe last week...they were in heaven.

    Don't you just love mixing up treats for them?? They seem soooo appreciative. Last nite I mixed organic blueberry yogurt with kale...they devoured it! [​IMG]

    Your mixture sounds delicious! [​IMG]

    YUMMY! [​IMG] It sounds like you need to make a bowl for yourself to enjoy with them! [​IMG] (I'd substitute granola for the crumbles by the way! [​IMG] )

    I tried to give mine some cantolope yesterday and they wanted nothing to do with it. Is there a trick to it? It was their first treat. Maybe I waited too long to try.

    Oh they loved it,
    they're only 2wks old I hand fed them theirs and it was mashed nearly to a pulp and some pieces looked bug-like so they took to it quickly especially with the crumbles mixed in. I had a hard time with the shavings getting stuck in with it though. It was a messy feeding, especially for me as I had little chunks of cantaloupe and yogurt all over my hand [​IMG] yum...
    Wonder if they'd take mulberries, anyone?

    Mine love almost anything mixed with yogurt. Last week I mixed in diced strawberries and it was gone in a heartbeat.
