    I just made a big batch of:
    cold chicken grease
    grated carrots
    can of beans
    crumbled up hard boiled egg and shell
    peanut butter
    stale bread
    mixed it all together and spooned it into an 18 pack egg carton and froze it. popped out the little frozen treats and threw a couple to the birds. They loved it!

    oops, i said speckledhen meant to say redhen, we were discussing suet before.

    I was just wondering about this today.I had a chicken that I roasted and it's too old for me to eat.

    I put the meat in a container to bring out to the bird, then I noticed the very solidified stock and wasn't sure whether it was too fatty to give them or not...

    Our chickens LOVE all that icky stuff. It is pretty gross to me, but they love it!:pllb

  5. I'm making suet balls. You glue the ground suet together with peanut butter, lard or any suitable fat, and add cereal, grain, scratch, other suitable chicken snacks, keep in freezer...

    at the deli today i bought a package of what is called "bird ball"...im guessing it is fat. the grump said i should tie it to a string and hang it for birds in the winter. when i was tying it, some of it crumbled to the ground and the chickens went insane over it.
  7. Mine like the baccon fat/peanut butter and anything else I have laying around combo.
