what do you treat your girls with?
Home grown vegetables and herbs..
I have only 4BO, they get a measured amount of BOSS & MW (1/8 cup each once a day). I used to feed healthy treats, veggies & fruits but noticed they weren't gaining weight. It was suggested worms but possible over treating. Treats shouldn't be more than 10% of their feed as it "neutralizes" the nutrition of the feed. My pullets started gaining weight so guess I was "over" treating. Easier to stop than it is to calculate
I ferment my Flock Raiser crumbles for them. They get some every morning to supplement the dry feed they have access to all day. They think it’s a treat and it’s good for them. I have a watermelon in the fridge and they are now getting a slice of that in the afternoon until it’s gone. They REALLY appreciate that because it’s been pretty hot here lately.
Cooked spaghetti squash. I microwave it 12 minutes. Poke holes in it before microwaving. I cut in half and cool. My Chickens and Ducks love it..
Some of my flocks favorite treats are corn on the cob, halved zucchini/squash, bread in moderation, old tomatoes, shredded cheese.... Pretty much anything I'm willing to share with them they are willing to eat lol
I have seen BOSS a few times on the site, but what is it?
Boss is Black oil sunflower seeds and high in fat.
I have sunflower seeds that I got for my bird feeder, but not sure if they are the right ones, but I have given some to my chickens.
I don't feed it to my Birds..
