Homemade Chicken Treats for Valentine’s Day or any day

chicken treats for Valentines Day

Y’all already know how much I love my chickens 🙂 I can’t believe they will soon be a year old!

Should we have a party? LOL 🙂

In addition to laying mash and water (of course), I give them cracked corn daily as a little snack while I’m gathering the eggs. I also give them fresh herbs here and there and leftover veggies when available. But I really enjoy making special little treats for them every now and then!

That’s why when I saw this easy idea on Instagram (@ourlittlebluefarmhouse) , I just had to try it. I already had everything I needed to make these “chocolate covered” strawberries. It was perfect timing for Valentine’s but would be a fun treat any time of year. And all you need is three ingredients.

ingredients for chicken treats

Strawberries, Yogurt, and Cracked Corn (the recipe I saw used bird seed)

You want to use whole strawberries for this recipe. Leave the stems on them as well.

Gertrude was asking me when I was going to make more of them lol!

Do you have chickens too? Do you like to spoil your birds a little sometimes too?

Let me know in the comments!
