Three Swingin' Chicks Recipes
1/2 cup chunky all-natural salt-free peanut butter
1/2 cup chicken scratch feed or regular chicken feed
6 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup dried mealworms
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
Microwave peanut butter until soft. Stir in chicken feed, oats, mealworms, raisins and cranberries. Spoon about 1/4 cup into 6 cupcake liners. Top with additional cranberries and oats if desired for garnish. Freeze until firm. Remove from cupcake liners and give to chickens. Store covered in the freezer; thaw slightly at room temperature before giving to chicks.
Makes 6 chicken treats.
(You can substitute raw pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried coarse corn and chopped peanuts for the oats, mealworms, raisins and cranberries.)
