Make Your Own Flock Block Boredom Busters For Your Chickens

Great recipe for making your own block of healthy ingredients for the chicken to peck at and eat when they are bored. They sell these but they are not cheap and making your own will let you know what is in them and give you control over what your chickens eat. You can also substitute with other ingredients if you don’t have all the ones called for in the recipe.

Nutritious ingredients your chicken will love, from Calendula petals t make the yolks more yellow to oatmeal and it has both starter and scratch in it so the chickens will get plenty of what they need. Before baking you can make a hole so that you can hang the block for the chickens. The Chicken Chick shares the recipe and says it will make two blocks.
