A tasty and beneficial treat!
Many of us "chicken people" find joy in treating our feathered friends. Some of us *ahem* even go so far as to prepare special chicken salads for their appreciative
I'm slightly new to the
art job of chicken-keeping, so I tend to get overly enthusiastic about feeding treats to the chickens. What can I say, it makes me feel important when they all come running to me the second I step outside. I know they're really just using me for my food, but I choose to be delusional and think that they love me. They really love me!
Can you see the love?
Perhaps this look of adoration could be interpreted as a look of, "put the darn camera down and feed me," but whatever.
The more these chicks (and rooster)
appreciatively hungrily gobble up the special treats that I give them, the more fun I have obsessing over finding new foods to give them that are fun and healthy.
I swear I will stop putting lines through my words now. Moving on...
My newest treat obsession= Yogurt! They love it. And so do I. I eat the plain, whole milk kind, so that's what they are getting as well.
Sometimes they like it mixed with oatmeal. And sometimes they indulge in a fancy, gourmet salad comprised of strawberry tops, yogurt, and flax.
I would even eat it, if it weren't for the green stuff. Check it out!
I think the flock felt special, eating this. And I felt like a gourmet chicken chef.
Just let me be delusional. Simple pleasures, my friends.
Why feed yogurt to your flock?
1. They like it
2. Digestion-improving, health-boosting, probiotics (they're good for chickens, too!)
3. Calcium (you know, the stuff their shells are made of?)
Do your chickens indulge in yogurt treats?
