I have heard that chicken scratch is great for an added winter treat because it helps the chicken by adding to their normal production of body heat which makes sence to me. The problem I have is my hens don't seem to care for scratch at all. I purchase it from a local feed store because I can't find it where I buy their normal feed (TSC). They love dried mealworms which I buy by the bulk (11 pounds for $164.00). Other treats they enjoy are plain yogurt, kale, boss, melons (anytype), and corn on the cobb. Does anyone know of any other treat/feed that has the same effect as chicken scratch; maybe flock block? Now that it is getting colder, I would like to add to their diet something their bodies can use to generate body heat to stay as warm as possible. Thanks in advace, Adopted Chickenman.
