    1 cup oats
    1 "shelled" hard boiled egg
    1 yogurt cup
    mixed fruit (banana's, strawberry's, blueberrys) No acidic fruit! (oranges, lemons)<<< stay away from these fruits

    I was trying out different things and made this. now you can either mix it all toghether in a bowl or blend up the fruit and yogurt toghether then mix it in the bowl with the other ingredients. My chickens love it and hope yours will to

    Sounds delish. How many chickens will that treat at once?

    Well when I first mde it none of them ate it. servings may be for 3 birds double it for every 3 birds you got. so 2 cups o yogurt and oats and 2 hard boiled egg for 6 birds. Mine eat it once a week. I never give it daily.

    Well we just got our chicks yesterday, and wanted to find some treats to hand feed them, some of my questions are:

    is this treat ok for the babies [​IMG]

    what kind of yogurt to use, and can i use like fruit ones ( strawberry banana, blueberry, etc.) [​IMG]

    Thanks soooooooo much! [​IMG]
