Cranberry-Raisin-Peanut Butter Cakes (for chickens)

  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.

(You can substitute raw pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried coarse corn and chopped peanuts for the oats, mealworms, raisins and cranberries.)
