Artistically styled lunch bowls are everywhere, full of colorful fresh + roasted vegetables, sprinkled with sprouts + topped with an over easy egg. Who says they are only for us? With these super cold temperatures + snow, our chickens need help getting the nutrients they would normally get scratching around in the yard and garden. We put together a giant sized bowl packed with protein, warm oatmeal + fresh berries to treat our hens!
How to make a lunch bowl for your chickens
In a large bowl, add 10 cups of rolled oats + stirred in enough boiling water to cover, let it set until the oatmeal softens. Scramble up 12 eggs, place them on top of the oatmeal. Make a nest of shaved carrots, broccoli, spinach, rose petals + blueberries. Sprinkle in oregano for immune system support and cayenne pepper to warm their little bellies and ground flax seed to boost egg production. We also added some of our Chicken Treats which is loaded with herbs, calcium + protein.
30 chickens were so excited for their lunch!
*Ducks also love a treat like this, but we always chop up vegetables and berries for them because they get so excited they tend to swallow things whole!
