I made some small cakes for the chickens yesterday. I adapted the recipe from one I found online.
My 3 week old chickens have been doing a bit of feather picking so I was trying to think of ways of keeping them busy. The cakes have been successful but I could probably have cooked them a bit longer.
I will post the recipe if any one is interested.

'The chicken chick' has a recipe for a flock block but I didn't have many of the ingredients listed so I just made it up.
1 cup chick crumbles, 2 cups rolled oats, polenta, ground rice and cous Cous from the pantry to make up another cup, 1/3 cup scratch (cracked),2 eggs, 1/4 cup of oil and 1-2cups of water to make a stiff but not dry mix.
I pressed the mixture into a 12hole silicone muffin tray and made a small hole in the centre of each for hanging up.
Bake in oven at 160 for 1 hour then leave in oven to dry out.
Next time I will add fresh corn instead of the scratch mixture as it was really hard work to
grind it.
