What is it for?
We know that chickens need to eat more in cold weather in order to maintain their body temperature and stay warm. Lots of people still worry that their chickens will get cold and like to give porridge to warm them up. However, straight porridge oats don’t make a good porridge for chickens as they will not provide enough nutrients for egg production or feather growth. We created a healthier porridge for chickens so you can treat your hens and do them some good at the same time! Please remember that Poultry Porridge is a treat and should not replace layers pellets.
How is it Made?
Poultry Porridge contains the best quality porridge oats combined with protein rich seeds and cereals to make a much healthier and nutritional porridge for chickens. This special edition recipe has added diced, dried apple, ground cinnamon and raisins for the ultimate breakfast treat. Poultry Porridge contains seeds and pulses which are known for promoting condition and are a real favourite with your hens. We have also added black oil sunflower seeds which are rich in oil and easier to digest than the striped variety (in fact, the shells help to support digestion and the hearts are a good source of vitamin E for a healthy immune system)
With the warming cinnamon aroma, you will be thinking your hen’s breakfast looks better than yours!
Feed as a treat. Allow approximately 1 tablespoon per hen. Add hot water to create a porridge consistency and allow to cool. Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Porridge eating is a messy business and they may like to wash off their beaks!
