We are always being asked what treats can I give my chickens? Here are our top treats for not only yumminess but also health!
Soft bananas, great source of vit B12!
Finely chopped herbs-oregano and parsley are great for boosting immune systems.
Mealworms, you can get these dried in most pet stores, they just love them!! Great for protein!
Finely chopped kale, cabbage greens and chard again amazing for an immune boost!!
A few cloves of garlic and fresh ginger in their water once a week is a great natural wormer and immune system booster. Don’t leave them in the water for more than 2 days though!
SEEDS they love seeds and they are very good for them, sunflower hearts, sesame seeds and pumpkin are the best.
Corn is great fresh on the cob hanging in their run they will love pecking at the kernels which also works as a boredom buster, or bought dried corn is another great treat.
Avoid -general kitchen scraps though as this can get stuck in crops!
Happy treating, remember that treats are not a meal substitute so little and often is best and don’t overdo it or they can get runny poohs!
