    I use cracked corn as chicken candy. They will do anything for it.

    Also, there was a great thread here on crickets. I haven't tried them, but will be hitting the bait store soon.

    Oatmeal with raisins and yogurt.
    Cornbread with whole canned corn mixed into the batter. Yummy!
     
  5. I have not had too many chickens turn down Yogurt. I keep an eye on my plain yogurt (use it for cooking) and when it gets close to the expirtion date, they get it. I mean you almost have to wear a raincoat to put the stuff down, they are all over it and shaking thier heads and throwing it everywhere !!
