We got a blast of winter weather here in the northwest on Monday and I felt bad for my poor cold chickies so I took to the kitchen to make them something warm and tasty. Just thought I'd share my recipe since they devoured it like crazed little monsters 2 or 3 cups of layer crumble or pellets (I used pellets cuz thats what I had) 1 cup of scratch or cracked corn a handful of grit 2 or 3 tbsp Molasses Boiling water Pour layer feed, scratch, and grit in a large bowl, then drizzle molasses over the top. When water comes to a boil pour it over the dry ingredients. You will need enough water to just cover the dry ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are combined and the micture becomes a mash. Let it cool down until it's still warm but not so hot that it will burn. Serve to your cold little chickies on a cold day! ***I made this with pellets which probably expand more than crumble so if you're using crumble I would add the water slowly and stir to see how much you actually need. Does anyone else have favorite cold weather recipes they like to make for their flock?
