    I know I read it on here previously, but now I can't find the post.

    What kind of oats from the feed mill is the same or about the same as oatmeal?

    I'm planning for cold nights and wanting to grind a bit up for my babies.

    Thanks so much!

    Quote:Rolled Oats/ Steamed Rolled Oats are the same. There just not meant for human consumption and there a whole lot cheaper in price.

    I give my hens rolled oats as a treat, mixed with BOSS. Because I have horses I always have oats on hand.
