Those of you who read this blog or follow my Facebook page probably know that I love to make all kinds of fun treats for my chickens. One of my favorites to serve is warm oatmeal on a cold winter morning, with seeds, raisins and other yummy add-ins. I don't know if the treat actually warms their bellies, but I feel better serving them a hot meal first thing in the morning - and they sure gobble it up!

You can mix and match different nuts, seeds and yes, even dried insects, and create your own custom treat mixes.
- Got some molting hens in the fall? Why not make up a high-protein mix of mealworms, dried river shrimp, dried grubs and waxworms.
- Mix up a high-energy winter bedtime snack of peanut hearts, cracked corn and black oil sunflower seed.
- Boost heart-healthy Omega-3s and -6s with flax seed and safflower seeds.
- Jazz up morning oatmeal with raisins, dried cranberries and sunflower kernels.
|-Okay, so I got fancy and layered the treats in glass canisters to store them-|

Peanut hearts are a nutritious treat that help give the chickens energy and keep warm in the winter.
