Winter Treats for Chickens
This recipe is featured in Chick(en) Picks
- ½ c crushed egg shells
- 1 ½ c layer feed
- ½ c buckwheat
- ½ c cracked corn
- 1 small apple, core & all, chopped
- ½ c bacon grease or other fat
In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients and fruit; then add fat. Spoon into 1-2 cup size containers. You can use muffin tins, paper bowls or plastic cups. Press the mixture into each container. Freeze overnight.
I keep several in the freezer and take them out intermittently. Just pop them out of the container, or place container and all in the chicken pen or coop for your flock’s enjoyment.
