With more and more chickens taking up residence at The Compound, we've had to find creative ways to give them treats. Why have them if you won't give them treats! Our chickens absolutely love treat time! One of the recent go to favorites has been cooked rice. It's easy to make, easy to store and goes a long way for your budget.
We throw in some shredded carrot, peas/split peas, and then freeze it in blocks. On the hot days they really enjoy picking at the block, and the carrot and peas make it a bit of a game. Chickens get bored easily, and when they're bored they'll pick on each other just for fun. So give them something to do. They take turns working almost all day on a block of veggies and rice.
