your girlies for supper on cold winter nights. I would like to give my girls a variety without having to buy a huge sack of something that lasts forever. I only have five chooks at the moment!! I am in the UK so winter nights aren't that cold, at the moment that is. Thank you in advance for your replies.

I take some of their normal ration, a handful of scratch, a handful of sweet feed, a couple handfuls of rolled or quick cooking oatmeal, add warm water wait a minute while it soaks up the water than feed, you could add some other things like raisins, canned corn or peas, chopped fruit, applesauce, cottage cheese, yougurt, anything your chickens like as treats.

They have 20% feed all day, get some scratch sometime during each day and a treat a couple times a week.

Dry, well ventilated but draft free coop and their usual daily balanced nutrition is all they need to 'stay warm'.

What more would they need?
