    its getting cold here in Ohio. High temp today is like 14 degrees. Does anyone feed their chickens treats that are warm to help them warm up? I saw somewhere that someone gave their birds warm cooked oatmeal so I tried that the other day. They seemed to like it. Any other ideas about warm treats? I feel so bad that it's getting really cold out.

    I fed my girls some farina yesterday morning and they went nuts. I'm sure they would like grits too. I think I'll try oatmeal next. My girls are very spoiled.
