Here is a nice hot treat for your chickens in the fall and winter, that they are guaranteed to love. At first I was not sure about feeding our girls this oatmeal. However, I gave this homemade chicken oatmeal recipe a try and I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a quick 5 minute recipe that is very easy to make and flexible. There are many different toppings that you can experiment with until you find one that they love more than the others. Mine seem to love when I mix both raisins and meal worms together, instead of just one of the other.
