    I've found my girls go bananas over KIX low sugar cereal as a treat. I limit them to one handfull a day and they love me for it. Sometime I will allow them to peck one at a time from between finger and thumb, but the real fun is when I toss the handful into the run. It's all gone after a frantic two second scramble.

    Oh! They like bananas , too.

    That was a good suggestion for a treat! Are your girls full grown hens? I would love to try this with my chicks but they might be to young! lol But I will try the tapioca pudding MoodyChicken didn't think to try that one either!

    My girls are about 5 or 6 months and just starting to lay. Cottage cheese is a real winner as well.
