Mix your own Custom Chicken Treat Blends

Those of you who read this blog or follow my Facebook page probably know that I love to make all kinds of fun, nutritious treats for my chickens.

One of my favorites to serve is warm oatmeal on a cold winter morning, with seeds, raisins and other yummy add-ins. I don't know if the treat actually warms their bellies, but I feel better serving them a hot meal first thing in the morning - and they sure gobble it up! 

But chickens LOVE all kinds of nuts and seeds as well.  You can mix and match different nuts, seeds and yes, even dried insects, and create your own custom treat mixes.
