Thought this would be good for those who prefer visual images. :D

Image

This is a picture of the morning mash I made for my bantams.

Ingredients:

3 eggs with milk (nuked until just set) Then I add; chopped celery leaves and stalks, grated carrot, sunflower kernels and dry rolled oats. Served warm on old ice-cream container lid. They yummed it all up! :lol:

I'd love to see photos of what other folks feed their chooks, and how they serve it. I use old ice-cream container lids because they're free and easy to clean.

I know, I spoil 'em don't I? :lol:

Today's meal isn't so colourful but nonetheless full of goodies.

Image

Ingredients:

Three handfuls of rolled oats and 1/2 cup milk (nuked for 3 mins) to which I then add 1 dried apple-ring, diced. Set bowl aside. Next, I nuke 1 handful of brown rice and water until tender. Mix two together and serve on ice-cream container lid. To garnish, (REMOVE AVOCADO FROM THIS RECIPE - POISONOUS) try a few sprigs of Itallian parsley instead. :wink:

Everyone, feel free to share your meal creations too. :D Also, if I'm serving up anything potentially harmful, let me know as well.

Errrr, Christine - as far as I know Avocados are poisonous to chooks...
But despite of that it looks yummy.

Oops, I hope not. :shock: Better go do my research. They did tend to eat around the avocado though. Thanks for letting me know!

Thanks for letting me know about the avocado everyone. I've editted the recipe now so it won't be duplicated by anyone else.

Wow! Looks great darrssy, and I bet they loved it too! :D

It feels like an online recipe card swap, as I'm definitely using that one! :lol:

I've got a few more warm mashes I've made up.

Image

Ingredients:

Quarter butternut pumpkin, nuked and mashed to which I then add the pumpkin seeds back in. A handful of dry rolled oats, a handful of layer grains mix, a tablespoon of sunflower kernels and finally, a few chopped basil leaves.

They didn't gulp this one down like they normally do, so it's either the basil leaves or they weren't feeling too crash hot over the previous mornings avocado debacle. :shock:

Happy to report they are all doing well and the one with the sniffles has even cleared up. :D

This is one I made up this morning, to use their layer pellets they won't normally eat.

Image

Ingredients:

A full handful of layer pellets laid on the lid, make a well in the middle. Add one tablespoon of dry powered milk into centre, then pour boiling water in middle until liquid reaches the side of the lid. Let soak in for a few minutes then mix to a sloppy mush. Add 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic, bit of grated carrot and a few tablespoons of reheated basmati rice, cooked the night before.

They really went for this one, even though the pellets normally put them off. I think they loved the cooked rice but got a bit of mashed pellet on each one. :lol:

Here's a simpler version of the pumpkin mash earlier.

Image

Ingredients:

Quarter butternut pumpkin, nuked then mashed - add seeds back in afterwards. Add handful of dry rolled oats, teaspoon each of sunflower kernels and crushed garlic. that's it.

There are many mashed pumpkin variations at the end of pumpkin season! :lol: They help us eat them before they go off. I try to add the garlic in winter to help stave off the sniffles.

Today was the first day I also added some apple cider vinegar to their water. About a teaspoon to 500mls water. Smelled not at all like vinegar, but rather freshly picked apples. :D

Couldn't resist adding a pic of my girl's morning mash. The fact that I mix up such a brew for the chooks, for breakfast... - and do this before feeding my husband - is a point of contention in this household (especially if I add mashed egg in there too - hee hee).

This concoction is grated apple, pellets, mashed grains, rolled oats - moistened with a bit of milk and hot water.

They just love it - if they are out free ranging when I arrive home in the car, they actually run to greet me while I am still driving!! Bizarre chooky love.

May I ask why you serve these warm? Is it easier for them to digest? :wink:

Gordon Ramsey eat your heart out..!! :)

I use a food processor to create my mashes. I use Sprouted Lupins as the main ingredient...

I feed my chooks warm mash in winter time... It gets 'em going...

Cool thread...
