Treats are fun to give your flock, but remember to provide them in moderation as they will need the nutrients provided in a high-quality well-formulated chicken feed first and foremost. Meyer Hatchery offers a great selection of treats, but also consider the following foods when wanting to treat your chickens:
- soldier fly larva
- meat scraps
- yellow squash and zucchini
- sunflower seeds
- leafy greens
- grains ( bulgar, flax, niger, wheatberries)
