    cooked red beans. Ok so it didn't go over that good but they better get used to it cause i just acquired about 15 pounds of dried beans and beans have a 10% protein count. They did end up eating it all, But i am sure glad i am not sleeping in the coop tonight![​IMG]

    I made up some warm oatmeal with sliced bananas, this morning. Last night, however, they had dry oatmeal, sunflower seeds, oyster shell, and mealworms before bed.

    I just have to say I love you people. You make me feel so much more normal.

    Today they got leftover stuffing, red beans and rice and some biscuits.

    Oh and I took a whole cup of mealworms and tossed them all over the yard for them to forage for. Spoiled rotten birds.

    This morning I didn't have time to make them anything so they just got warm water to warm 'em up. Last night I made tea for them. :) Yeah, I know. :p Tonight they get fruit and veggie scraps. Tomorrow morning I want to make something extra yummy for them.

    They got their leftover box. I don't know exactly what was in it. When we have a meal I just put the things I know are "chicken safe" in a tupperware box. I add stuff throughout the week, keeping it in the fridge. On the last day of the week i take it out of the fridge and microwave it, and put it in front of them. My chicks could make a good "Gone in 60 Seconds" poultry movie. I used to give them treats every day but ...in my opinion it was just too much of their diet and they weren't eating enough of their feed, so I changed my method. Now they get treats once a week but it's a mish-mash of different things and they look forward to it.
