    If I mixed cherry preserves and regular yogurt together could my chicks have it?

    [​IMG] Personally, I'd worry about the sugar content in the cherry preserves. I give my chicken yogurt (LITE=low fat/low sugar) on top of their morning treat of raw oatmeal.[​IMG] They clean the bowl in minutes !

    They can have oatmeal.

    A little bit of something sugary isn't going to hurt them. Mine routinely get leftover desserts that come home from Bible study, I don't really want the leftover food after a swarm of young kids and toddlers have been touching it unsupervised with their germy little hands, gross. So the chickens get it.
