    I am out of feed - I already went to town today and was back before the feed store opened. I am not going to town again until tomorrow - and they are hungry today [​IMG] What can I make them in the kitchen to tide them over until tomorrow? I have some buns in the freezer I could thaw out and toast for them, but seems like they didn't like bread when I tried for a treat.... I have corn, oatmeal, cereals (mostly sugary kinds), rice, what to feed what to feed! I have never done this before and I feel terrible.....

    oatmeal and corn, srambled eggs, and if you have any split peas or dried lentils you can grind some of those up and add that as well. you can put in a little bread too. doesnt matter that much as you will be getting feed tomorrow
