You can serve it to them like you do their normal food, or even make hanging treats.
To make hanging treats, you will need oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, lentils, peanut butter, string, scissors, and a toilet paper or paper towel roll
The steps are super easy!
Cut a small hole in the paper towel roll to fit a piece of string through. Cut the string as long as you prefer and knot it after putting in through the hole.
Mix the ingredients, spread peanut butter on the toilet paper roll, and roll it in the ingredients. The mixture will stick to the peanut butter.
Hang the feeder in the coop and watch them go for it!
If you wanted, you could even go as far as making whole treats by mixing all the ingredients, including the peanut butter together and shaping them with cookie cutters. After they have dried, you can put a string through and hang it up for the chickies!
More things you could hang for treats are heads of lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, and other vegies.
Basil, Bee Balm, Cilantro, Comfrey, Dandelion, Dill, Marjoram, Mints, Nettles, Oregano, Parsley, Sage, Spearmint, Tarragon, and Thyme are all great herbs for chicken's health.
Pick some fresh plants and hang them in your chicken coop. They love having different things to peck at!
I love using herbs around the farm for EVERYTHING!
