    Some treats mines enjoy is parakeet feed,veggies (some),Apples,rice,and bread,corn.Bread and any starch product should be used carefully.A lot of starch os bad for chickens.Bread can cause obesity,and Obesity cause many things....I can list one thing.

    Rice should be cooked.I have never actually heard of giving them uncooked rice,but I may need to search I should mention,oatmeal is another favorite..

    Rice DOES NOT need to be cooked and can be feed "raw".
    In fact a lot of pigeon feeds have raw polished rice and or paddy rice in it.

    Contains:
    Popcorn, Canada Peas, Red Milo, White Kafir, Maple Peas, Oat Groats, Austrian Peas, Whole Wheat, Safflower Seed, White Millet, Red Millet, Canary Seed, Rice, Mineral Oil.

    Thank you for that, gave me some ideas, mine just love meal worms, Sundays leftovers (raw veg) yogurt and porridge, I gave them some raspberries yesterday and they loved them! Was so funny seeing them run in circles
