    I like your page, I feed mine oatmeal every few days or so plus so much more and they just love raisins! I also mix up more with this meal in addition to the oatmeal and raisins, I'll add garlic powder, hard boiled crushed eggs, shell and all- they love these, layer for added benefits and so much more. I've just began with the Manna Pro preventitive for respiratory infections, plus a few other sicknesses, crumbles that seem to be helping a great deal since they had seemed a bit runny there for a couple days and now on the right track again!

    Mine eat bugs, grass, and their own poop, to be honest. LOL

    Their feed is evidently worse than poop on most occasions.

    I have made mine oatmeal on really cold mornings and they do love it. I keep some of that instant oatmeal around for kids' snacks but the kids never eat the "regular" flavor so the chickens get it. If I don't make them oatmeal I sometimes take some of their regular pellets and mix them up with hot water, sunflower seeds, and pepper. I only do this if it's super cold out-like single digits or below. It relieves their boredom too I think.

    Hot oatmeal with sliced bananas and a squirt of honey or molassas to make it interesting. Temps have been below 0 for a couple weeks now so I give them what I'd like to have.

    Yesterday, warm oatmeal. Had time to cook.

    This morning, chopped spinach and noodles. They LOVE noodles so I hid those under the spinach for more of a mid-morning treat. [​IMG]
