Eric Jackson October 7th, 2016

I keep my flock spoiled by keeping there coop clean as a whistle and keeping plenty of water and snacks available. For example cabbage carrots flock block water melon all kinds of fruits veges mil worms insect they love it all. also add a little calcium to their feed keeps their digestion all well..

Cheryl Flood October 7th, 2016

My hens just love the mealworms. They go crazy when they hear the bag.

Annette October 7th, 2016

I spoil my girls with blueberries, grapes, and sunflower seeds!

Kellie Kinert October 7th, 2016

My girls love the Chubby Mealworms, can’t spoil them enough!

Kateri October 7th, 2016

Mine know that when I go into the shop I’m bringing a treat from the freezer. It is usually bread, but it could be fresh frozen fruits/berries.

Carrie October 7th, 2016

Our chickens love to be held and rocked on the porch swing. They are definitely spoiled and would love the “Ultimate Spoiled Flock” basket.

Donna Besant October 7th, 2016

My chickens have free range when we come home in the evenings or when we clean the coop each week. They scatter all over the yard but usually gossip in sets of twos or threes. They know that when its time to come in all I have to do is whistle for them and clap my hands and treats will be at the ready. It is amazing how quickly they coming scooting across the yard for their mealworms, seeds, herbs, dried sunflowers, or whatever else we provide for the day as their treats. They are repaying us in kind with all the delicious eggs!

Heather Kearn October 7th, 2016

My girls love all happy hen treats and dusting them selves. They would love the bordem busting basket for sure

Raylee Greene October 7th, 2016

My girls are obsessed with mealworms! They hear the noise of the bag shaking and they come running!

Bridgette October 7th, 2016

My flock loves the chuncky chicken caviar! They were not sure what it was at first, but now they go crazy for it. They will follow me around like little chicks chasing their mom.

Katie October 7th, 2016

My favorite ways to spoil my girls are fresh veggies from the garden (especially squash and zucchini that have been left on the vine too long) and making sure they get to come out of their run in the backyard a lot in late summer when the grasshoppers are everywhere!

Lisa Grey October 7th, 2016

My girls love hot dogs! And of course meal worms!

Gwenn Rogers October 7th, 2016

Mealworms, mealworms, mealworms. I will also suspend a head of cabbage or lettuce.

Ch-ch-ch-chuck! October 7th, 2016

Our girls go for a nice garden fresh salad. And bugs for croutons!

David Gray October 7th, 2016

I screw a lag bolt into a cabbage and hang it from their food and water lean-to. They love cabbage and attack it with a vengeance! Sometimes all 29 girls will encircle the cabbage with 6-8 of them pecking at a time.

It’s almost as if they are playing tether ball and the girls not pecking away at the cabbage are cheering the others on with all the noise they make.

Twenty-one chickens can devour a cabbage in about an hour.

Lisa October 7th, 2016

Our girls love it when they get tomatoes from the garden! Otherwise, they really go for mealworms.

Cynthia Blue October 7th, 2016

I think I spoil my chickens the most by keeping them nice and clean. We have a small flock of show silkies, and I love washing their little feet, and combing them with a bristle brush. I don’t think they mind too much because mealies and treats always follow grooming time!

Jennifer Coffin October 7th, 2016

My favorite flock spoiler is a cabbage or corn on the cob tied up with string. The girls will sit there for hours jumping and pecking at it till it falls then they really go at it.

Shannen Vadney October 7th, 2016

My favorite way to spoil my girls is when gathering things from the garden I have one basket for us and one for the girls. They love it and get all excited. We also have a scrap bowl that is put out when there door opens in the morning as well as a really good feed mix I do myself.

Jerry D Rucker October 7th, 2016

I have a small yard and 12 chickens, all pets and soon to be egg factories.
Since I have a small yard there is little for them to forage when I let them out
an hour before sundown, there are a lot of stay cats and dogs in our neighborhood
That can jump our four ft fence. So I supplement them with dandylions and clover from
Mine and neighbors yards which have never been sprayed. I have a couple of those
Ball type holders that are hung so they have jump and spread some on the ground also.
They get scratch grain with meal worms every morning and evening. One other thing I
have noticed is that although they drink from the nipple waterer they seem to prefer
drinking from a bowl so I bought a gallon standard drinker which I fill in the morning
and sometimes later. I will use this in the morning with room temperature, or warmer,to
help warm them up in the morning. When it gets colder we will supplement there lack of forage
With grass and forage grown indoors maybe Some sprouts to. Glad to here any suggestions
Love M Pet Chicken. We actually ordered extra chicks last spring since everything I had read or
heard said we would lose some Put with the good stock we got and the quick answers to help need all have survived
And are thriving They are as dear to us as our dogs which have learned they are part of the pack
As an extra thought, I have learned that If you want to hold your chickens don’t chase them. I think chasing
Chasing and grabbing makes them think they are being pecked as in pecking order. It is better
To give them treats and get them close and trusting when they start laying they will squat for you and it’s much easier to pick them up they seem friendlier then to. We love our girls and now wish we could have a rooster but there not allowed
In Wichita city limits
Thanks. Pops Jerry

beth shepherd October 7th, 2016

Jessica Barnes October 7th, 2016

They love when I give them mealworms!!

Melissa Olund October 7th, 2016

Mine love anything I trim off my own produce.

Andrea H. October 7th, 2016

I love the Happy Hen products! I use the mealworms the most. My girls try to get my attention whenever I’m near the coop because they think I have something for them. If you want to win over your chickens fast Happy Hen is the way to go for sure.

Malissa Mount October 7th, 2016

My favorite flock spoiler are mealworms!Its so funny to watch them run up to me when I grab the bag!!

angela morse October 7th, 2016

Deborah Schmaus October 7th, 2016

To jump start my kids…..I unlock their playpen and throw a cup of raw oatmeal and they come running……in the cold of winter, I give them hot ostmeal with yogurt.

Irene October 7th, 2016

Mealworms and chunky chicken caviar.

Ginna Hood October 7th, 2016

Duane Clark October 7th, 2016

Natural chicken spoiler #chickenspoiler

Anna October 7th, 2016

Mine are still pretty young and just like kids they are picky! They turn up their beeks at veggies and fruit but they LOVE rice!!

Karen Wolf October 7th, 2016

My favorite way to spoil them is definitely with treats: they especially love scratch grains or a grain block and they will trample each other for a piece or two of bread!

Jeannette Steward October 7th, 2016

I give my girls and my guy fresh veggies and fruits as much as I can. I have even given them a whole watermelon to themselves to enjoy. On hot days, I will have frozen treats for them to help cool them down. Whenever I’m digging around in the yard or flower beds, I gather up all the worms I can find and give them a real treat! I am very protective over my babies and want to make sure they have the best! 🙂

Ashley Spears October 7th, 2016

We love the Happy Hen treat squares!

Allen Palovik October 7th, 2016

I go home every day on my lunch hour to check on my girls and give them treats, they love the Chubby Mealworms.

Karen Evans Wilson October 7th, 2016

Spouse build a covered dustbath for the girls. I always use fresh Diatomaceous Earth in it along with their usual. They bathe in it daily. They are parasite-free! The cover (a little suspended roof) keeps it dry and they love it.

Angela Watson October 7th, 2016

When it’s warm I freeze a half watermelon for the gals to help them stay cool. They like it a lot!

Lara October 7th, 2016

We spoil our flock with frozen peas in the summer and Happy Hen Treat Squares. #flockspoiler

Dawn Putman October 7th, 2016

My #flockspoiler. is fresh watermelon.

Karen Mahnken October 7th, 2016

My girls go crazy for grapes. They also love leaves from the broccoli plants in the garden. I’ll pull a leaf for them now and then, and then I pull the plants out just before the first frost and let the girls have them. And they enjoy a warm bowl of oatmeal on really cold days for a winter treat.

Sara Doyle October 7th, 2016

In the summer, my girls love corn on the cob–they can clean off a cob in less than a minute between the four of them. And in the winter, I warm up corn kernals and take it out to them on snowy mornings to help warm up their tummies. And for afternoon fun, a bowl of yogurt and spaghetti noodles was always welcome!

Heidi Trout October 7th, 2016

My hens come running from near and far when they hear me shake the dried mealworm (aka. chicken crack) storage container. They also love frozen watermelon in the summertime.

Aimee Ross October 7th, 2016

My ladies love mealworms but I also cut up fresh fruit!

April Chase October 7th, 2016

My girls love the mealworms…they recognize the container and they go crazy when they see me coming holding it!

Cathy October 7th, 2016

Our girls line up on the doorstep for mealworms…all of the red garden tomatoes too and of course yogurt.

Nancy Frye October 7th, 2016

When I’m in the garden I always call them over if I find a worm…if they’re not already underfoot. They also get to clean the rice cooker pan, and I definitely put ice cubes in their water on hot days because I hate being hot so I just assume everybody does.

Shannon McKay October 7th, 2016

We spoil the flock with the mealworm bricks! It’s a treat and a boredom buster all in one!!!

Kathy October 7th, 2016

My chickies love it when we bring them live crickets. I don’t think the crickets like it very much lol.

Jennifer Eagen-McCloskey October 7th, 2016

The Ultimate Boredom-Busting Care Kit is my favorite flock spoiler. Would love to try out the chicken swing! 🙂

Lynne Treibel October 7th, 2016

Chubby Mealworms, frozen berries, and leftover rice are my flock spoilers!

Martine October 7th, 2016

We love to share our garden bounty – especially the cabbage (they really love when there are some cabbage worms on them) and cantaloupes.

Chelsea Rogers October 7th, 2016

My girls favorite flock spoiler is mealworms!

Denise Friske October 7th, 2016

I would love to win this for my hens! They will enjoy the treats as we go into winter!

Susan Baker October 7th, 2016

My gals go crazy for the dried meal worms! When they hear me opening the gate to the garden, they literally come running to me to see if I have any worms for them! 🙂

Jeffrey Reynolds October 7th, 2016

Meal worms are the rave with my flock.

Jennifer October 7th, 2016

My girls love the treat bars and meal worms. My secret weapon to rich yolks and healthy chickens is using alfalfa for their bedding in the fall and winter. The love to nibble off the green dried alfalfa leaves off the stems. It’s a good supplement for greens during the dry dead SoCal seasons of fall and winter.

Barbara Stevenson October 7th, 2016

My girls just love the meal worms, but my favorite is the chicken swing! I just can’t imagine anything that would make me giggle more than that!!!

Michelle October 7th, 2016

Our girls are still quite young and haven’t gotten the hang of loving treats quite yet…but I am sure it’s coming! I hope to spoil them with some dried mealworms over the winter and would love to make a treat toy that they push around to release scratch through little holes…

Rebekah October 7th, 2016

Just got 24 new chicks from y’all 2 weeks ago, so I’ve spent most of my days cleaning pasty butts!! Ready to spoil my chickens with this basket, in the past chickens loved all my leftovers!!

Lisa Ardoin October 7th, 2016

#chickspoiler. I make my girl’s a big bowl of treat’s every morning with fresh green’s, oat’s, fruit and some fridge leftover’s.

Marisol M October 7th, 2016

My hens LOVE mealworms!!! As soon as they see me they fly up really high to get my attention…..

Denise Worrell October 7th, 2016

I post on FB for folks to give their “used” pumpkins to me. I go around and pick them all up, then split one open every day for the flock. They go crazy! I throw the picked-over pumpkin leavings behind the barn, where they work hard to grow me more pumpkins the next year!

Michael Hunzek October 7th, 2016

The girls love watermellon when available and go crazy over black sunflower seeds

diane Mathey October 7th, 2016

My chickens love mealworms. Put them out and they come a running!
#spoiled chickens#love fresh eggs

Jill Kaminski October 7th, 2016

My little girls are only 3 weeks old so I haven’t had a chance to spoil them with food yet, just lot’s of love. I have give them in small amounts watermelon, lettuce, bread and eggs. Just a little something to give them something scratch at.

Stacey Johnson October 7th, 2016

My girls love various Happy Hen Treats, including mealworms and mixed seeds! They come running when they see me go to the shed door because they know they are about to get a treat. They also love anything that they get from the garden or fruit trees!

Michele WetzelHillman October 7th, 2016

The flock loves when we turn the soil for them to scratch and also enjoy when we let the hose run and fill the pen with fresh water to play in.

Cindy Williams October 7th, 2016

My chickens love the mealworms and pumpkins! I occasionally give them a Happy Hen treat square, and it will disappear within minutes!

Carol October 7th, 2016

I love my chickies. I only have 4. I lost one about 2 weeks ago. I had 5 🙁

Lorrianne M Byington October 7th, 2016

My girls absolutely LOVE their mealworms. I have 9 girls in all and as soon as I walk through they gate they are at my feet jumping for the container.
I’ve only had my girls since the beginning of September 2016 and I am obsessed with them, they’ve had watermelon (which they love), fresh veggies, of course the occasional scratch, and then their mealworms, they are as obsessed with their mealworms as I am with them 🙂

leslie phillips October 7th, 2016

Lay or Bust! I need help I have some slacker chickens in the egg laying department!

NANCY STORER October 7th, 2016

We happily spoil all of our ladies with treat balls, a garden veggie “clothesline”, frozen fruit treats, your corn and worm squares and the chicken swing. In fact our oldest chicken Paprika, 10 years old and going strong, was the 1st to learn to use it. Now its her perch when it comes time to handing out treats.

Paula Fretwell October 7th, 2016

This looks so eggciting. What a great way to induce us to new products!!!!

Sheila R. Langeslay October 7th, 2016

I spoil my chickens by insuring all their needs are met. They sleep in a spacious coop known as Cluckingham Palace with fresh food, clean water and cozy nesting boxes. They free range in the yard, scratching for bugs and taking dirt baths. Before bed I bring out a container of raisins and they sit on the arm of my chair and tell me about their day. Then it’s up the ramp to bed. I started with four and now have sixteen. In return for all this pampering they give me joy and fresh eggs.

Jen Topp October 7th, 2016

My flock loves frozen watermelon cubes in the summer time!

Kim Tabor October 7th, 2016

My girls are HUGE fans of mealworms. They are learning tricks because they’ll do anything for more mealworms!

Katie O. October 7th, 2016

My hens love Hentastic Treats!

Jered Hedrick October 7th, 2016

Our silkie hens meet us at the gate to their run and talk to us. We like to think they are asking for their treats. Which their current favorite are fresh raspberries out of the garden. Even our shy girls will come take them out of our hands.

They also just got spoiled big time with a large upgraded coop for the winter. They love the multiple floors of roosting space and laying boxes.

Michele Reboulet October 7th, 2016

My girls love the fruit and nuts snacks along with the mealy worms.they get so happy they all want to be petted.

Glenn Franklin October 7th, 2016

The ladies LOVE Chubby Mealworms!! They’ll actually jump up to try to get them out of my hand!

Traci October 7th, 2016

Mealworms, garden extras, flaxseed, or a big cabbage/watermelon/pumpkin depending on the season are some of my favorite ways to spoil my flock.

Lyndsey October 7th, 2016

Meal worms are a treat the girls REALLY enjoy. Sometimes they get scratch grains or pumpkin. They would love to have a special treat from this amazing basket!

Tonia Krumvieda October 7th, 2016

My flock can’t get enough mealworms!

Ivy October 7th, 2016

I spoil my serama mix hen by letting her live indoors with me in my home. I’ve tried to get her other chicken companions but she prefers her human family. She gets only the best of care and eats better than most people. She loves getting peas, veggies, salad greens, bananas, crickets, live and dried meal worms. She gets oatmeal and salads as treats sometimes I prepare them very specially for her with things she loves. She wears a chicken diaper in the house and sleeps in bed with my boyfriend and I. She is one spoiled baby and I know she loves new toys she gets excited when I get her new things 🙂

Tonya October 7th, 2016

My flocks favorite is green vegetables.

Sarah R October 7th, 2016

Most definitely the happy hens treats! My girls devoure those!

Georgia Price October 7th, 2016

My girls love being held! We give them fresh veggies & decorate their coop for Easter! #flockspoiler

Dennis Galvan October 7th, 2016

I give my chickens meal worms, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, watermelon rind, and salad leaves, and fix a bowl of organic yogurt mixed with chia seeds!

By their sound, they are very content hens! 😉

Sarah Hyland October 7th, 2016

We have a treat dispenser we can fill with mealworms and leave in the run. The girls love kicking it around and trying to figure out how to get the treats out!

Laura October 7th, 2016

My Girls LOVE Mealworms!!! They are like crack for chickens! They come running! Chubby mealworms are the way to go!

Dawn Aye October 7th, 2016

Tomatoes! They LOVE tomatoes! And of course being hand fed Chicken Crack 🙂

Angela Whitehall October 7th, 2016

I have the chicken swing and am DYING to see one swinging on it! Anyone else have chickens playing with it? I will have to set up a web cam!

Becky October 7th, 2016

My girls love mealworms and free range time. I’m not sure which one they like more!

Jess Salter October 7th, 2016

Mealworms and lots of fresh veggies!

Vernon Ream October 7th, 2016

I planted grapes close to my chicken run 3 years ago.
Bad knees prevented me from caring for the grapes properly.
This year I am somewhat healthier and discovered, to my dismay and my babies delight, vines and grapes all over the top of my run.
Now I am separated from them by chicken wire.
The Concord grapes were much to prized to not pick.
I did surgery on the wire and retrieved what were accessible.
With every visit to the run they follow me to the vines and look up
They absolutely love grapes and those I cannot get, they get, from wind or me picking.
Now When visiting the run I simply use my cane to beat on the wire.
Down come the grapes and my babies are in Heaven.

Tracy Jenner October 7th, 2016

mealworms and fresh green vegetable leaves are the biz. They will chat and squeak with glee as they scratch and run around with them in their beaks.

Jessica Parker October 7th, 2016

Mine love mealworms!!! Great offer.

Mo-chickens October 7th, 2016

My girls are still chicks. But I am currently on the search for things they will enjoy when they get older. They will certainly be spoied.

Tiffany Cox October 7th, 2016

My babies love mealworms!!! They are rotten!

Jamie October 7th, 2016

My girls love a good variety of food and to RUN!

Joseph Jenkins October 7th, 2016

All of the Happy Hen treats that I’ve purchased so far: girls love them!

April Lionberger October 7th, 2016

I’m going to make my chickens a homemade veggie pie with double crust, cut it into slices and freeze. On really chilly mornings, I’ll heat up a piece of pie and treat them!

Sarah Kooymans October 7th, 2016

My girls LOVE the oats and dried mealworm mix by Happy Hens.

Faith Adrian October 7th, 2016

My boys and girls would definitely love this. This time around I would spoil my boys a bit more than the girls as they are the strength behind my flock and sometimes they get forgotten a bit.

Pete mcdaniel October 7th, 2016

Glad I discovered you www site as I prepare to order and raise my first flock in the spring

Kathy Self October 7th, 2016

I cannot head to the Happy Hen Treats without my girls following right on my heels.. I have a little saying that I call to them…. Yummy yummy yummy,to your little feathered tummies. It’s our ritual, so I don’t EVER run out. TOO cute!

your

Dianne Reilly October 7th, 2016

My girls have their very own refrigerator drawer full of fresh goodies: greens, shredded cheese, cottage cheese, peas, apples,and grapes. But they nuts for meal worms- alive or dehydrated…made in the USA only please. A Boredom Buddy basket would surely make their day! Thank you MPC!

Lisa Chase October 7th, 2016

My hens are in desperate need of the Browbeaten biddy basket. Our large rooster has one or two favorite hens, but they all love the treat ball. I fill it with all kinds of things from fruit to weeds pulled from the garden.

Karen Zieman October 7th, 2016

My girls’ favorite treat is cottage cheese. They don’t get it very often, but they go crazy when they do. All their other treats can go onto one tray, and they’ll share. I have to put the cottage cheese in individual bowls or they’ll fight ovrr it.

Amanda withers October 7th, 2016

I spoil mine by giving them meal worms and they free range everyday. They also get veggies and every once in a while noodles.

Diane October 7th, 2016

I do not have my chickens yet, but I can hardly wait to spoil them. I had chickens on the farm when I was a kid. I really enjoyed them. I named them and spoiled them with fresh veggies and treats. They loved to be carried around on the farm. So9 sweet.

Debra Scavuzzo October 7th, 2016

I spoil my chickens with mealworms, cut grapes, berries, and fresh pumpkin wedges in the fall.I also collect live earthworms and crickets as special treats.

My chickies love mealworms! 💗

Susan October 7th, 2016

There are so many cool ideas on this web site! My girls love the cubby meal worms so much they are beginning to have the plastic bag reflex when I bring it out they go nuts! Love your web site and my new corner metal feeders! Great for extras like grit and shells and keep the dirt out! Thanks to you all at my pet chicken!

Rhonda Mills October 7th, 2016

My chickens are in heaven right now because the neighbors are cleaning out their garden and throwing all of their leftover tomatoes and other veggie into their run for the girls to enjoy. Love that my neighbors spoil my girls almost as much as I do.

Sue Reichert October 7th, 2016

Kate Vargas October 7th, 2016

Meal worms hands down

Mariann Zelinski October 7th, 2016

Flock spoiler has to be mealworms!!! Shake the bag and they come a running !!!! 🐛🐛🐛🐓🐓🐓

Karen Cox October 7th, 2016

I am new to the chicken world but have spoiled my in many ways. I bought a storage shed 16×8 and had them convert it into a choop. It has double doors for me, 2 windows for ventilation, nesting boxes, roosting poles and a door for the chickens to get out to their own run which for now is only 7x16x6. I plan on adding on later. I haven’t tried to let them free range yet. I feed them a variety of treats every other day so they get very excited to see me coming. They get fresh water 2x a day and at 6 mo. old I am already getting eggs. I am one happy chicken mommy.

Rich Schmitz October 7th, 2016

Chubby Mealworms are the best to draw my girls (and guys) to me. They love those treats!!!

Nancy Simmons October 7th, 2016

My girls love corn on the cob! They enjoy the corn, and getting it off the cob is and exciting — and highly competitive — game for them.

Jane Williams October 7th, 2016

My chicks Bonita and Bertha would love this basket full of treats!

Betsy October 7th, 2016

My little ladies love cheese and can’t get enough of the Happy Hen treat squares!

Sarah October 7th, 2016

My girls love yogurt. Another great thing they live in the summer is the fruit freeze I make them. I place a bunch of fruit in a cake pan and ass water (and electrolytes if they need extra) then I freeze it. The next hot day I pop it out of the tin, place it in their yards and let them peck and play with it. It helps cool them off and hydrate. Plus, the bonus of mental stimulation.
Love to spoil my flock.

Paula Bielby October 7th, 2016

Chubby Meal Worms – my son loves giving them to the Chickens daily. Fresh picked and hand fed basil from the garden – their favorite treat. Lots of Fresh and dried herbs, fruits and vegetables. Fresh dustbath with Ash, Diatomaceous Earth, Lavender, Dill, and Fluffy dirt. A very clean and tidy coop with lots of Roosting places and Rose petals and Lavender in their laying boxes. Seeds and nuts and treats galore. Very happy Chickens that lay beautiful eggs.

Mary Miller October 7th, 2016

My favorite spoilers are raisins and cranberries! My flock LOVES them! Even our most unfriendly hen jumps all over us for some!

D.S. Bailey October 7th, 2016

My small flock (1 EE, 1 BR, 1 SS, 5 Silkies) loves black oil sunflower seeds; they get excited when they hear me shaking the container! I trim their beaks and claws with dremelmicro when they need it. My chickens even go to the vet when they’re sick (and I can’t fix it myself). My flock are just pets who reward my care with eggs!

Marilyn October 7th, 2016

My chickens expect treats every time I come near them! They love cherry tomatoes split open for them, cucumbers, apples, raw oatmeal, live worms, a chicken snack called Cackleberries, Happy Hen Treats (sunflower and raisin,) bread, and cooked potato. One of them loves to snuggle; if I sit in the pen, she’ll get on my lap and put her head under my arm.

Michele October 7th, 2016

Love the Boredom Busting kit!!

Deborah Salinardo October 7th, 2016

All I have to do is yell girly girls wheres my girls and they come running for there treats and if i’m late the one will come right to my door and wait then when i come out she will race me in my wheelchair to the coop where they all get treats and grooming!!!!!!

Sheila October 7th, 2016

My sweet hens would love new Happy Hen treats:)

My Girls, Miss Franny, Dottie and Lulu love grapes, mealworms and cantaloupe,

Jennifer Hortillano October 7th, 2016

The boredom buster is my favorite I think. I am always trying to find things that entertain my chickens. They use those treat balls and the cabbage hangers.

Pamela Edwards October 7th, 2016

My favorite spoil my chickens with is live mealworms. I grew my own mealworm farm which supplies endless treats for them.

Jennifer Grovdahl October 7th, 2016

While I have not received my chickens yet, I am absolutely fascinated by the thought of feeding them mealworms. I can’t wait to get them and start spoiling them!

Michelle Mello October 7th, 2016

My flock spoiler has got to be fresh off the tree nectarines! We live in a nectarine orchard and my girls get so excited when they see me walk in with a basket full! They’re other favorite treat is the sunflower and raisin mix. My girls are spoiled to no end and I love them oh so much!

Caryl Bohn October 7th, 2016

Grapes are the drug of choice here! Sure mealworms are good, but grapes are THE thing. We hang them high. We roll and make them chase. Boredom busting in the winter (nebraska) is a must. Treat baskets and toys, mirrors, and a radio are a necessity in our super coop!

D Loehr October 7th, 2016

My girls love the mealworms, they also get yogurt and oatmeal once in awhile for an extra special treat.

Brenna Vidoli October 7th, 2016

My flock loves the boredom busting items! They are always following me around the yard waiting to see if I have treats or a new toy!My 5 buff orpingtons and 2 silkies absolutely love their treat squares

Lisa B October 7th, 2016

My girls go crazy for mealworms, I buy them in bulk now, it is the one thing that gets them back in the pen when they are free ranging!

Dawn October 7th, 2016

Oh my naughty girls need that boredom busting pack to keep out of trouble.

Barb U October 7th, 2016

I don’t have a flock yet, but plan on starting one soon. Not long ago our city passed a law to allow chickens in town (huzzah!) and I am in the process of getting things set up for some hens.

Dot Haight October 7th, 2016

My girls have come to expect a treat every time they see me. Yes, they all have my number. All I have to do is get the bag of Chubby mealworms and they will follow me anywhere. Including the Roo and my ducks. #flockspoilers #mypetchicken

Alisha Libert October 7th, 2016

My lady birds love all things fruit! Melons, bananas, berries and even some plain yogurt with mealworms and you’ve got a chicken parfait! 🙂

Pamela Edwards October 7th, 2016

My favorite treat are live mealworms. I have my own mealworm farm. It supplies endless mealworms.

Joan Sullivan October 7th, 2016

In cold weather, I cook up some quinoa and mix it with their layer feed. I serve in warm and they love it.

Lee Ann Dail October 7th, 2016

My chickens love veggies from my garden and come running when they see me with the basket. Now that Fall has ended the summer treats we sure could use a flick spoiler package.

Kay Young October 7th, 2016

My girls love the ashes from our wood stove mixed in with hay. Every summer we buy a bale of hay and they tear it apart all summer long. Madonna and Red Rita love to be held and cuddled every day. When it’s hot, I give them a watermelon.

Liberty October 7th, 2016

My chickens love the little buggies around here! Hope they get to try some of those meal worms!!!

Janet Marshall October 7th, 2016

My girls love mealworms and anything containing watermellon

Heather Grabarski October 7th, 2016

In the summer, when it’s super hot I freeze watermelon and mint into ice cube trays and let the chickies pick the tasty cool treats. I also make homemade suet wreaths from bacon fat, mealworms and nuts and berries.

Sarah Hayward October 7th, 2016

Meaworms!!! Our chickens love dried mealworms.

Marnie S. Hoppe October 7th, 2016

First of all I love my little babies that I bought at My Pet Chicken! They are getting big and so cute! They absolutely love mealworms. Funny, they already go nuts when I get the bag!

Leronna Farley October 7th, 2016

My birds go GAGA over mealworms!! All I have to do is shake the bag & they come running!!!

Bonnie Miller October 7th, 2016

My girls love meal worms and treat squares. They can never get enough and come running anytime I have the bag in my hands.

Cortney Kaiser October 7th, 2016

They get scrambled eggs, shells, squash, watermelon, ice in their water in the summer, wild bird seed as a treat, hot oatmeal in the winter with apples, veggies, any other “goodie” I can find for them. I also have 2x4s around the coop where I lift them a couple times a month for a smorgasbord board of crickets, beetles and centipedes!

George Enzinna October 7th, 2016

We love to spoil our lovely ladies with a combination of earthworms, mealworms, macaroni (its fun to watch them fight over spaghetti) and scratch grains all combined in a kitty litter pan and covered with fresh compost–the ladies LOVE IT!!!

Dianne Langan October 7th, 2016

Oh, my goodness, my girls cannot get their fill of mealworms! They are the best! They will leave everything else to get their fill of mealworms. I have to keep them stocked at all times.

Shellie Adams October 7th, 2016

My ladies love the meal worm as soo, as they see they bag they start jumping. Also they love the flock blocks they finish those in a day..

Jaci Kroupa October 7th, 2016

We spoil our chickens on a daily basis by having their own radio playing Classical music in their coop…ours listen to NPR during all daylight hours. They really do lay better and are more relaxed when they have their music!

Lily Hanson October 7th, 2016

I love to bake grain cakes with carrots, eggshells, seeds, raisins, and oats. I bake a whole tin and I throw some into the coop and they all gobble it up. I also pop a whole bowl of mini popcorn when my girls lay exceptionally well one day! I throw it up in the air and it snows down around them, and then I give them the corn cob that the corn popped off of. Also, whenever I go out of town for the weekend, I buy a whole watermelon, cut it in half, and put both halves face-up into the coop. The looks on their faces say it all! Some sit inside the watermelon halves to hog it all to themselves. They’re clean down to the rind in thirty minutes or less. Mealworms are my go-to quick treat, also.

Jena October 7th, 2016

I have 12 hens and 1 roo. When they were young I put a few dry beans in a jar with a lid and I would shake it really loud every time I was going to give them a goody. Their favorite seems to have always been Cheerios and tomatoes. Every morning I would get maybe 1/2 cup of Cheerios, mix it with a chopped tomato and head outside to pick up the bean jar, give it a good shake and they come running!!!
Now I no longer even have to shake our jar, I just need to walk towards it. We still shake it for formality sake and I still think it looks just so cute when they hear the noise and all their heads pop up and look in the same direction at once.
I’m sure by now they are just humorist me because they know they’ll continue to get Cheerios and tomatoes every morning for breakfast.

Wendy Thomas October 7th, 2016

We’ve got 38 brand new chicks and the older girls are feeling a bit jealous with all these babies stealing the show! I’ve been looking for ways to pamper and spoil them!

Clara endsley October 7th, 2016

Woohoo
I want to win!!!
Love my chickens!

Rebecca Jiles October 7th, 2016

I give my chickens mealworms for their special trats. And they are gone in a flash!

Kelly Brady October 7th, 2016

My girls are spoiled with curtains entering the laying boxes and herbs in the nest box. They would love the lay or bust. I also discovered this last weekend they love music. They would love the ultimate with a speaker hook up !!

Shelley Hickok October 7th, 2016

My girls love there yogurt in the summer. In the winter I make them warm oatmeal with a little scratch in it. They love it on a cold morning.

Melissa Boatner October 7th, 2016

My girls go coo-coo for meal worms. They will follow my husband and peck at his freckles. Ha Ha

Susan Avery October 7th, 2016

I just read through all of the great comments here and it looks like the hands-down favorite is mealworms – something I’ve never tried but now I’ll have to check it out! So many great ideas! Here’s one of my favorite ways to spoil them, besides giving them whatever leftovers we have: Whenever I peel potatoes or yams, I boil the peels briefly to get them soft, which they love much more than raw peels.

Roz Radin October 7th, 2016

Our girls are happy when the other animals in the Barn come in and they all eat together.

Tori Goddard October 7th, 2016

Oh my gosh! This is just precious! My hens would love this they are my babies and they deserve a little treat!!

Melissa Billups October 7th, 2016

My ladies LOVE the meal worms. They smell them coming.

Sarah Sleasman October 7th, 2016

We just took down our garden fence for the season, and so our ladies have been spoiled lately with the “permission” to go scratch in the dirt and take care of any leftover beans and tomatoes. They also look forward to their daily pan of juicing pulp. We get angry looks if we miss a morning!

Vena Dunbar October 7th, 2016

I have gotten all my sweet girls from My Pet Chicken. I have different breeds, from from Mille Fleur Bantams to speckled Sussex. One of their favorite treats is cut open cucumbers! My special girl, Amelia, loves tomatoes. They are free range during the day and at night have a radio in their barn. They seem to prefer the golden oldies station for some reason. We love our chickens and they are very darling pets! They each know their names and are so smart! Years ago I had a house Chicken who jumped on the couch every day at 3:00 to watch Bonanza on tv. I swear this is true. Not only that, her favorite episodes always featured Hoss!

Michelle Ivanoff October 7th, 2016

Grazing on grass in the yard, chicken scratch to get them back in their run, and fresh vegetables from the garden keep our hens happy and healthy!

Dana Donnelly October 7th, 2016

We get mugged for blackberries. Or whatever else we’re eating in front of them…

B October 7th, 2016

I talk to my girls everyday, they cluck back at me. Makes me laught. They let the grandkids pick them up and carry them around the yard. Lots of fun!!

Melody Celine L'Etoile October 7th, 2016

My chickens love meal worms and toys. It’s awesome to watch them.

They can’t get enough of them.

Carolyn Robinett October 7th, 2016

Mealworms, the dehydrated kind. They come running to the door when they see us.

Ryan October 7th, 2016

My flock has been waiting for their new (new to them) coop to be moved for a month now. This would be a wonderful coop warming gift.

Robin Surface October 7th, 2016

My chickies love miniature marshmallows, though they don’t get them very often since I’m pretty sure they aren’t good for chickens. They also love meal worms and live bee moth larva (those are by far their most favorite). They are all very spoiled!

Dale Henderson October 7th, 2016

I spoil my flock by letting them into my vegetable garden to eat the bugs and whatever veggies they can reach on the plants. they love it

watermelon, rice and tomatoes, cooked cabbage, lettuce, apples, pumkin

Mealworms and leftover fruits & veggies, hands down!

Sharon Holt October 7th, 2016

My flock is spoiled with fresh veggies daily. Whatever I’m eating they get to eat too. In addition I give them mealworms and scratch corn in their feed occasionally. But the best #flockspoiler I can tell you about is fresh cold corn on the cob it is a great way to keep them cool on hot days. I break the ears into pieces so they don’t fight over them. They love me and I love them!! Hope I win!!

SueB October 7th, 2016

My ladies love the Happy Hen Party Mix. They also are very big fans of fresh fruit and worms!

Heather wilkins October 7th, 2016

Tamar October 7th, 2016

my girls get many treats that change with the seasons! midsummer means half-a watermelon, fall means whole corn cobs hung in their run…in the winter they get a cabbage tetherball in the coop – which they totally love! in the spring, fresh dandelion greens and plantain…every morning they rush out to see what Mom has brought for them! and of course in the summer chilled water, in the winter there is a heater. I love to sit outside with a cup of tea and just commune with them!

Brandi October 7th, 2016

My chicks love a lettuce head on a rope! Keeps them entertained and busy! And is a tasty treat! #flockspoiler

Carol carlson October 7th, 2016

Jim Poston October 7th, 2016

Plain yogurt in the afternoon; sun any time I’m there (whether or not the Colorado sun is shining!); and picking ’em up and saying “Good chicken”!

#flockspoiler (for those of us unfamiliar with Twitter…like me!)

Celeste Wells October 7th, 2016

My sons make chicken pies. These are often mealworm based with various greens and sometimes strawberries. They have no idea that chicken pies meed different things elsewhere.

Leyla October 7th, 2016

My flock seems to think they are not nearly spoiled enough. They are demanding I serve them the Flock Spoiler package!

Lisa Rebagliati October 7th, 2016

My girls absolutely love the “Happy Hen Treats,” especially the sunflower & raisin party mix. My hens free range on a third of an acre, but all I have to do is hold up the bag and give it a little shake and every one of my girls will come running.

Lovanda October 7th, 2016

My girls mainly get scratch, peelings, etc. but their favorite treat is when my husband catches bugs and hand-delivers them

Katy October 7th, 2016

Our girls love their meal worms, their deluxe coop and their covered run. They all get the treats and free range time and scratches. Oh, and fresh herbs – they ironically love tarragon and sorrel. But my Orpington Blanche gets spoiled more than the rest – I have a strawberry patch I let her forage in and she loves me to hold her and carry her around the yard. Sweet chickens!

Nicole See October 7th, 2016

My girls and guys LOVE mealworms!!! I think the boredom buster basket has some great items my biddies would love!

wade howard October 7th, 2016

I use My Pet Chicken fertile eggs to teach students about the egg to chick cycle and the importance of agriculture. I only have the chicks for a week after they hatch, before passing them onto a new home. I like giving them Grow Gel to give them a protein boost and a good start to their lives.

Karen Lester October 7th, 2016

My girls go crazy for mealworms.

Kevin Havran October 7th, 2016

I like the “Browbeaten Biddy” Package the Best as it offers items to protect bullied chickens. I’ve lost a few birds over the past few years due to this situation. Had a “Vampire” Buff that would pick at others vent hole till they bled & died. (She did this one bird at a time till after I caught her in the act. I only had one bird left alive after she was removed) The products you offer in this package are not available in our local farm supply store. For my situation this is by far the Best Package Offered. I could piece it all together through Amazon but not at that price, I’m almost sure.

tracy farthing October 7th, 2016

My chickens’ favorites are grapes and tomatoes!

Leslie Franco October 7th, 2016

My chickies LOVE all kinds of treats from mealworms to fruits to veggies to canned mackerel and even cat food! Also one of their favorite activities is when I let them out after they head to the porch to finish off the cats’ food they head to the pigs where they hop up on their backs & ride them. (the pigs like it as well, they get their backs scratched LOL)

Kayli October 7th, 2016

Susan sudano October 7th, 2016

My hens live like Queens. They are spoiled by their free ranging all day and leftovers every night. Whether it is rice. Fruit, veggies or their favorite spaghetti.

Joanne Domingoes October 7th, 2016

My Chics love to follow me around the yard waiting and anticipating a yummy snack, I like to keep them guessing! I have planted many berry type plants in the yard just for spoiling occasions, they love the Goji berries and the plant leaves. they will leap in the air to grab a leaf off the bush and they know when I go by that bush, they’ll get the berries from me. But, they also know that they either have to stoop and let me pet them or get on my lap for their treats. I love my chics 🙂

Cathy Webster October 7th, 2016

Our spoiled chickens love to hang out with us when we are outside. We roll blueberries for them to chase (they go bonkers for blueberries) and put broccoli in a suet container in their run. They also like to be petted!

Le Michelle October 7th, 2016

My favorite way to spoil my girls is with treats from our organic garden. But THEIR favorite treat of all time is sneaking into the garage to steal bits from the bag of dog food!

Laura Mikulski October 7th, 2016

My girls love to be spoiled with a treat of mealworms, or warmed chicken feed in the winter. My newest additions would love to be spoiled with the great products in the “browbeaten biddy” package, since we’re having a hard time with integrating them into the existing flock.

Susan October 7th, 2016

My Hens and one rooster love when it is really hot outside and I bring out 3 big watermelons that I cut in have and put them under the tree so that they can have a refreshing treat and get cooled down.I also wet the dirt with water under the tree so that they can scratch the dirt and lay in it to cool off. Every day I cut up bananas and strawberries with some spinach and call them to the patio and they come running for their goodies. I have added a fan to the chicken coop so when it is hot my egg laying hens can stay a little cooler.

Pamela Rehm October 7th, 2016

Summers can be so hot and humid around here and we spoils our girls by giving them slices of ice box cold watermelon. They absolutely love it and it helps them stay cool

April McKenzie October 7th, 2016

Debbie! October 7th, 2016

My chickens love cabbage on a string — it’s like a piñata! And I love giving them any kind of melon rind, extra rice from Chinese takeout, corn on the cob, all the leftovers from the garden and our small orchard, and of course, mealworms.

Jennifer Ernst October 7th, 2016

My mom lives in a nursing home and the activity director knows I have chickens. Whenever they have a watermelon social, they save all the rinds for me and I bring them homes and dump them out for the chickens. They are in chicken heaven. I also have a couple of friends that make their own beer so when they have the leftover grains they call me because they know my chickens love them!

Karen Bertoldi October 7th, 2016

My hens love mealworms and flock blocks.

Karen Burris October 7th, 2016

Sadie Meazell October 7th, 2016

MY chooks love the dried meal worms. they also love BOSS and strawberries.

Jodi October 7th, 2016

MY favorite flock spoiler is watermelon! My flock comes running when it’s watermelon time of day. The problem is that in our area watermelon season is almost done. It’s getting harder and harder to find a nice big watermelon to buy for my flock each week. The watermelons are getting smaller! What will we do when the watermelons are all gone in the winter? I guess we’ll have to find a new special treat. Next year I plan to try growing watermelons.

Joy Freeberg October 7th, 2016

I haven’t started spoiling mine yet as they aren’t quite 3 weeks old, but they will soon be getting some pumpkin and watermelon!

Meg October 7th, 2016

Mealworms, mealworms, mealworms!!!! My flock comes running in a full charge when they see the bag.. Yummy. So much fun to watch them gobble their treats.

Brittany Perry October 7th, 2016

I spoil my girls with mealworms and scrambled eggs. In the colder months I also serve a warm dish of food every morning.

Cal October 7th, 2016

I spoil my girls by feeding them fresh kale, strawberries, and cherry tomatoes from the garden.

gail maynard October 7th, 2016

I spoil my chickens in a healthy way. After juicing my veggies for me, I give the pulp to my girls in a special mini bucket just for them. They love it! And in return they give me back delicious, healthy eggs!

Tamar Amidon October 7th, 2016

I like to put a hole thru a cabbage and hang it inside the coop in the winter, it’s like they are playing tetherball. Helps with boredom and helps spoil them.

Jennifer October 7th, 2016

Our girls love apple halves and wax worms!

Mary Jo Garrity October 7th, 2016

I give my girls the usual, mealworms,corn and Whear Bread, however they love America n Cheese!

They also Love to jump on my back as I clean their droppings from my back yard. So the get piggy backs to boot!

Jenny Wille October 7th, 2016

I’d love to win the ultimate spoiled flock prize for my chickens! Thank you for a chance to win! 😄

Leah October 7th, 2016

I’m fairly sure that my girls would sell their souls for mealworms in a heartbeat. they recognize the bag, while I’m still yards away and crowd me like crazy. like – its hard to take even the smallest step without accidentally stepping on a chicken paw crazy. blueberries and cantaloupes are also pretty popular, but nothing like mealworms. hilariously, they are mostly indifferent to sunflower seeds O_O

Melinda Kordik October 7th, 2016

On cold mornings, I cook their pellet food with some oatmeal and bring them a warm breakfast. Of course, mealworms are always a win.

Jo Pfeiffer October 7th, 2016

I like to spoil my chickens with produce I grow in my garden. The love watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, and corn. I buy them mealworms and get a kick out of watching them go a little crazy over them.

misha mcpherson October 7th, 2016

They went from being MyPetChicken chicks to My Spoiled Chickens 🙂 My ladies get fresh fruit and veg every day, and while they will eat off the ground, if they have to, they prefer to be hand fed. I try to give them something new or different every day, but their favorites have been… tomatoes (seeds first), melon (any and all kinds), and cauliflower. Don’t even get me started about corn, which I think is chicken heaven. Crickets were entertaining for them as well.

But whatever I feed them, they like me to hold it for them. Because… thumbs 🙂

Erin October 7th, 2016

Corn!! My chickens love corn. If I have corn in my hand, my chickens will follow me anywhere!

Karen Miller October 7th, 2016

I have the largest number of spoiled pets. These chickens know exactly when
I’ll show up in the morning. The calls are loud and certainly let me know I’d better have their meal worms and seedless grapes. One young lady follows me in the house to let me know how great the treats were. She also knows she’ll get a couple extra worms too. They all free range with the ducks,
their favorite dog and their pet cats. Dog, cats and I have all been well trained. What an enjoyable life.

KATHERINE P October 7th, 2016

We spoil our flock of 25 w a rotating sprinkler in the summer. They go crazy jumping through the streams just like my kids do. Funny stuff.

James Welch October 7th, 2016

Well the meal worms are great, we also bring them spoiled tomatoes from the garden with bugs in them. They also like all types of greens. We will cut the lawn and they will run towards the lawnmower to get the green bits of grass and bugs that are thrown from the mower. A favorite is a bale of straw. They go nuts scratching it and throwing it up in the air. lots of fun chicken drama that gets the one rooster all worked up for his 27 hen harem.

Kimberly Law October 7th, 2016

We have chickens a the elementary school where I teach. Our chickens LOVE leftovers from school breakfast and lunch. The 1st graders use the eggs wipes to clean the eggs to feed to our sugar gliders and lizards.

Charlie October 7th, 2016

We give our girls mealworms, corn, cucumbers, watermelon special blend seed treats, and scrambled eggs, to name a few. Our coop/run is totally enclosed in 1/2 inch hardware cloth so it’s completely predator proof. Weather permitting we take them out and put them in an enclosed pen where they love to eat the grass and take dirt baths. When they’re ready to head back home to the run we lift the pen and watch what we call “The Chicken Run” as they all scurry home while we all get a good laugh.

Mandy October 7th, 2016

I love my chickens! They are the sweetest!

Mandy October 7th, 2016

Donna Daun October 7th, 2016

My ladies love organic bananas!

Hunter October 7th, 2016

I love to spoil my girls and Rhodie (my rooster) with lots of cuddles! I have 19, and they’re all lap chickens! I sit on the ground, and they’ll encircle me and take turns climbing in my lap. Most of the time they take a snooze on/around me!

John Schafer October 7th, 2016

Our little flock does the “mealworm dance” whenever we break out the bag of mealworms. They absolutely love them. If they have been extra good, we’ll break out the ultimate treat and sprinkle mealworms on top of plain yogurt. They cheer for joy when they see the mealworm caked yogurt plate coming their was. Too funny!!!

M October 7th, 2016

I love love my chickens ..
I only have 3 however, we are building a coop as we speed

Love love having chickens .. It took me some time
To decide, now that I have 3 , I just love it.
Fresh eggs . No GMO. ( I feed my girls no GMO
grain only). We’re building one more coop for
3 more chickens as we speak. Hope to have it
done by next month .. Will be ordering 3 more
And who knows how many more in the near future..

Meryl Rafferty October 7th, 2016

Three things I do for my chickens that make them exceptionally happy:

1) In their yard, covered in deep litter, I keep adding new straw and alfalfa, sweepings from the feed store. Theiy’re free and keep them entertained.

2) I built some roosts of varied heights using tree branches. They love to hop around them and simply to sit and contemplate their wonderful lives.

3) In their coop, I often drill a hole in the center of a cabbage or cauliflower and hang it from the roof at pecking height.

The bests spoiler for me was investing in an automated gate to their coop that opens at danwn and closes at dusk. No more having to let them in and out of their yard.

Rachel Niswonger October 7th, 2016

My favorite way to spoil my flock is we give all of our fresh veggies scraps whenever we make dinner to our birds. When it is hot outside I will freeze them in water and throw in some dried herbs as well and our flocks get a healthy treat while naturally boosting their immune system!

Helen LaRue October 7th, 2016

I spoil my chickens by giving them pumpkin in the winter that I grew myself and then freeze, I let it thaw and they love it!! I also make my own flock block from recipes that I found on pinterest. I also grow my own sunflowers seeds that I give them in the winter as well. ( I add them to the flock block), they love it!!

Mary Lynn October 7th, 2016

I spoil my girls with fresh herbs and squash that I have grown in the garden.

Ellen Ashe October 7th, 2016

Oh my flock is spoiled as bad as my children!,, they get mealworms and come running when they see me coming cause they recognize the bag. Also, included are fresh veggies from garden, watermelon,!

Amber Ruchti October 7th, 2016

We LOVE spoiling our hens! Our girls get plenty of treats- each varying with the seasons we get here in Minnesota. Our girls always go crazy over meal worms and get to enjoy them as a treat year round, but just as spring comes along they spend a lot of time out free ranging snacking on all the little bugs they can find. On hot summer days the froze blueberries are a crowd favorite! Fall brings out plenty of pumpkin and squash and warm oatmeal to keep them toasty in our bitter MN winters. My daughter Ava,3, and I have spent our summer renovating our chicken coop and there’s no doubt in my mind they have the best coop in the county 🙂 Plenty of room and full of all the frilly, fancy things a girl could love. Nesting box curtains, lace window drapes, white washed walls and a big turquoise chandelier- just to name a few of our favorites. We made some upgrades to our home this year- so any left over materials found their way repurposed into the girls shed. It’s been an amazing year- for both us and our hens- and we look forward to many more with our wonderful group of girls!

Daniele Storm October 7th, 2016

Pasta! They love pasta and warm oatmeal on a cold morning! Watermelon for sure on a hot day!!

Lori Benton October 7th, 2016

I like to give our gang some warm oatmeal with dandelion root on cold winter days!

Eva Coffee October 7th, 2016

Leftovers, lettuce, honeydew melons, and scratch. They also like pears. They are so fun to watch when you give them a treat, eating away and keeping a wary eye on my chicken helper, Diablo, a gray tuxedo cat who actually likes them and doesn’t try to hurt them.

Dianna Wassell October 7th, 2016

My girls love meal worms mixed with scratch grains. We call them back in from free-ranging with this treat. When they hear anyone touch storage container, they come running! Frozen watermelon chances in a suet cake holder are their favorite heat-beater.

Erica Cooper October 7th, 2016

My girls LOVE LOVE LOVE anything that is bread related. Once we gave them jelly filled powdered donuts and it was everyone for themselves! The norm is stale bread, mealworms and cracked corn for treats.

Melissa Russo October 7th, 2016

Both my hens and roos love my homegrown fodder. They even pass over scratch for it 🙂

Karen Oliver-Paull October 7th, 2016

Dani Silvester October 7th, 2016

My gals love melon of any kind, and we grow extras just to be able to share with them. They go crazy for kale too, and our garden produces it well into the winter months. I also sprout wheat and barley on the kitchen counter, which I hand out every single morning. It’s worth it to see 30 chickens running towards me as fast as they can!

Laurie Ter Avest October 7th, 2016

Our girls love fresh watermelon, apricots, mealworms, sunflower seeds, I made them veggie popsicle muffins in the hot summer, they love to free range when we are at home, and come running for scratch in the evenings. They love to their beaks rubbed, and their chest massaged. My husband and our rooster banter with each other. Most of the time Mr. Big wins over my husband, but after it is said and done, Mr Big loves to be held.

ChrisKris October 7th, 2016

My girls live meal worms. They come running when I call “chick, chick chick chick chick”. They then get watermelon or food scraps. Once I made too much of a quinoa amaranth blend of grains. I put the leftovers in their coop in the morning and they scarred it all up. I just live to see them come running.

Janna October 7th, 2016

layle dees October 7th, 2016

The little ladies of Lola’s Clucker House love the happy hen treats… 4 girls will finish one block in 2 days! And, of course, mealworms make them come a runnin’. They favor grape tomatoes and grapes and go crazy for our homegrown cantelopes and peaches (no peach pit). I am saving for a chicken swing! With all the Texas rains, we had an abundance of insects, so they had lots of wiggly protein treats this year! They free range in the safety of the yard and even with clipped wings those girls look like low flying bombers going after grasshoppers and snouts.
I love being a chicken mom!

Chrissy October 7th, 2016

My girls love mealworms, grapes, raisins and watermelon!

Joely Bridge October 7th, 2016

My girls are free ranged 100% and to most chickens that is spoiled enough. But I love to go across the road and pick fresh corn on the cob for my girls and hang them all throughout the yard. Giving them a toy with treats. I also like to hang peanut butter sprinkled with layer and scratch on pinecones all over the place for my girls and boys to eat. They fly high to get some really good treats I put up in the trees for real birds but they love it too. I also spoil them with catfood! yes you heard me catfood! My girls love to eat the wet dry cat food and they love it.

RoseQ October 7th, 2016

My ladies love mellons and strawberries. In the summer I cut them in half and leave them out for the picking and stuff their suet cages with strawberry tops. In the winter I make them up batches of quinoa spiced with ginger, garlic and cayenne for intestinal health and they mow that stuff down! As far as attention, Violet loves to be hand-fed (and is always looking for a way into my kitchen) and Anise likes her chest to be massaged. Saffron is particularly proud of herself after laying so likes to have a fuss made over her, Sorrel enjoys me letting her sit on the porch because that’s where the ‘big girls’ sit, and Lavender can’t really be spoiled- she’s content with just about anything.

James E Clark October 7th, 2016

My girls really love it, when I bring them a bowl of potato skins I scatter it around there pen and they go wild, they also love tomatoes. I spoiled my flock with watermelon and cantaloupe

D. Henrichs October 7th, 2016

My girls just love the mealworms.

john kostiuk October 7th, 2016

Mealworms in the winter, Japanese Beetles in summer.

Brittany Hagenow October 7th, 2016

We love to give our girls meal worms! They are so loved and spoiled 🙂

Genevieve Allen October 7th, 2016

I like to hang a head of cabbage like a pinata and have my chickens peck at it until nothing is left. Plus, they enjoy the chicken swing!

Jay October 7th, 2016

Fresh watermelon in the Summer and pumpkin in the Fall. I grow kale for them in a raised bed too. We have a very kind neighbor, who is also a brewmaster and brings the Girls spent beer grains after he makes a batch!

Rebecca October 7th, 2016

When I go out the ladies come running. They are so comical. Just puts a smile on everyone’s face to see them. They are so spoiled and happy. They would dance a jig to get the spoiled flock basket.

Denise October 7th, 2016

My girls get a vegie that they can peck at all day in the morning, in the afternoon they get a mix of greens and fruits. I hand feed the rooster every day and the girls. They get piles of leaves to play in.

Brittany Davidson October 7th, 2016

Mine go nuts for tomatoes! Mealworms are a very close 2nd!

Jean Baker October 7th, 2016

My flock goes nuts over meal worms They love fresh watermelon too But I think they’re favorite is finding a field mouse or a mole They just love it when I sit out with them and have long talks

Mare Levine October 7th, 2016

Ours love any food from our kitchen we share with them. Veggies and bread products are their favorite, along with our organic chicken scratch. It’s so fun seeing their excitement!

Suzanne Redalia October 7th, 2016

My chickens love oat nut bread, raisins, mushy bananas and lettuce leaves when it’s time for treats.

Kristin Lewis October 7th, 2016

Boredom Buster …love this giveaway and we are excited about adding more baby chicks to our flock this week. Our first baby chicken order from you is going to be delivered next week and my little girls are so so excited!

Shelby Forbes October 7th, 2016

Our girls go crazy for their “chicken crack” (mealworms). They know the bag by sight and if you gently shake the treat bag, they come running from wherever they happened to be in the yard. We’ve found it’s perfect for training the new babies on when to return to the coop. If we happen to run out… we’re in big trouble and it’s an automatic emergency run to the store!

Tracey Smalley October 7th, 2016

I give them free reign in the garden in the fall; they feast on the late tomatoes, bugs, grubs, lettuce & chard, and small pumpkins.
When winter hits, it’s mealworms and ‘scratch’.

Wyndi Stevens-Hill October 7th, 2016

Our girls are still pretty small (2 months old now), but growing fast. Everyday is a new food that gets scattered for the pecking! They are very spoiled and have their own covered yard with new berry bushes planted just for them. They love getting new treats!

Kelly Marie Porter October 7th, 2016

I spoil my girls by swatting flies. Once, I swat one, I tap the ground with my fly swatter and they run to get a tasty fly.

Robin Reed October 7th, 2016

My girls and guy love the chubby meal worms!

Stephanie October 7th, 2016

My girls get something completely “new” every day. i stuff their suet feeder and hanging basket with a few different veggies each day…. They may also get a different surprise at the bottom of their salad bowl! Live mealworms are of course a favorite surprise for this. I may have 3-4 different sprouts going so they get a different one each day. Some days I add extra fermented feed water to their crumble to make a delicious soft cereal. they may get a new bucket of leaves to scratch through…. I may put treats on the steps of their ladder perches…. They love the carcass of half a cooked spaghetti squash that I may throw live mealworms in the bottom of as a surprise. Or simply let them chase crickets! Whatever is new and exciting they sure love to tell me about! I love reading everyone’s ideas, this is the best! Thank you all!

Andrew October 7th, 2016

My girls love sunflower seeds in a chicken treat ball. Unfortunately, the squirrels like them too!

Julianna G. October 7th, 2016

Our chickens enjoy entire Watermelons (or this time of year…pumpkins). They completely carve them out and then hide in them.

Brigit October 7th, 2016

Leftovers from my kitchen and veggies from the garden are my favorite way to spoil my girls

Billie Boeche October 7th, 2016

My girls (6 of them) and one Banty, Japanese Frizzle Rooster. Just love crickets and sunflowers! Every morning and evening I allow my feathered children into my fenced front yard to eat all the crickets they can find…I help them by turning over boards and moving items so they can catch their treats. I give them a tea glass full of black oil seeds. They gobble them up!!! In the morning they reward me with fresh eggs!!

Pam Steinke October 7th, 2016

My girls love all treats, especially mealworms, but will come running whenever I approach pen.

Gina Bell October 7th, 2016

To spoil my chickens I grew sunflowers lot of sunflowers The girls love them Good for bees too . After the bees have taken the pollen I pull the whole plant and throw it in their yard ( they have about 400 square feet in addition to their coop)they get so excited and eat everything but the stalk. Once in a while I also dig up earthworms from the garden for them They are hilarious running around clucking I won I won with a night crawler in their beak

Dotty October 7th, 2016

My favorite chick spoiler is the Ultimate Spoiled Flock. I love spoiling my girls and their guy. 🙂

Winona Ludwig October 7th, 2016

I love to spoil my girls by giving them mealworms from the pet store I work at!

Fernando L Maldonado October 7th, 2016

My chickens go nuts over mealworms of course – and any scraps from dinner

Amanda Lisman October 7th, 2016

During the peak of summer veggie season, I run lots of summer squash, apples, and carrots through the grinder to roughly shred everything. Then I use the shredded fruits and veggies with mixed whole grains and molasses to make homemade chicken treats (I form them into big rings and bake at a low temp until completely dried). These make my girls really perk up during the winter when the garden and trees aren’t producing. Also, I’ll stand by the flock while they enjoy treats and provide a safe space for the lowest chickens in the pecking order to enjoy a treat without being pushed around by the other girls. They know they’re safe by me!

Sue Fischer October 7th, 2016

My flock loves frozen peas that I thaw out and take out to them when they free range–They hear me shake the bag and they come running. I have several that jump and try to take the bag out of my hand. Peas are a great source of protein. I love to spoil them once or twice a week…

Krista wilkinson October 7th, 2016

My babies love popcorn. I have an air popper for them and once a week we sit in the backyard and relax with a bowl of popcorn. The are used to popcorn night that they are waiting and watching in the wind while it is being made.

TLN October 7th, 2016

Definitely the mealworms. The girls act like kids with candy when the mealworms show up.

Megan Seever October 7th, 2016

My ladies come running to the run door if they hear the back door to the house open. They go nuts over strawberries, blueberries & grapes!!

Denise Downs October 7th, 2016

Mealworms are the best treat…my girls will do anything to get mealworms! They have even grabbed the bag right out of my hand! If they see the bag or even hear the crinkle of the plastic, they come running across the yard for their treats. ☺️🐓

Kendra Staley October 8th, 2016

My favorite Flock Spoiler is the Boredom Busting package!!!!!

Danielle October 8th, 2016

My chickens love oats!!…I think that’s a first for this list lol

Constance L Kus (Jensen) October 8th, 2016

My flock would LOVE the boredom busting care package!! Living in the desert, requires us to provide as many sources of entertainment as possible!!

Lydia October 8th, 2016

Nothing tops mealworms! But I will cook them hot cereal (maybe with fruit or peanut butter!) when it’s cold.

Germaine Harrison October 8th, 2016

My chickens love grapes, meal worms and squash.

Erin October 8th, 2016

Boredom-busting is key, I love to see my spoiled flock staying busy and happy. Here in Alaska, they get warm oatmeal on cold mornings, scratch on cold nights, huge covered area to keep out of the snow in the winter.

Mindy Arledge-Hicks October 8th, 2016

In summer our 8 little ladies and 3 guys get spoiled with garden tomatoes and melons. On really hot days they get a bowl of ice water with frozen berries to bob for, which will help them cool off. In winter they get extra grains, aka chicken scratch, to help them keep warm. Year round they enjoy soaked chia seeds as a treat and kelp mixed into their feed. This helps them get lots of nutrients which makes their eggs even better for us. Spring and Fall they get salad greens from the garden and handfuls of grass and clover picked from the hayfield. They love our kitchen and table scraps. It seems magical that they turn our trash into delicious eggs! We even ask for a “chicken box” at restaurants if there’s something we didn’t eat that they will. And of course, mealworms are the ladies’ all time #1 favorite treat!

anna muhovich October 8th, 2016

I would love to give my chickens the ultimate flock spoiler basket! I love to give my hens fresh kale from the garden and deseeded apples. I put a plastic baby mirror in their coop for entertainment on cold Alaska mornings when they prefer to stay inside

Cindy M. October 8th, 2016

My girls get treats of fresh fruits and vegetables every day. They come running to me every time I walk out the door of the house into the yard because they expect treats. When we eat dinner on the deck one chicken who thinks she’s a dog stays on the deck under the table with the dogs so she can get her fair share of dropped food. We have a light in the coop and a small heat pad for the cold short winter days which helps the chickens keep laying through the winter.

Amber October 8th, 2016

This is my first time keeping chickens, so everything is a learning experience. I have one girl who, from the time she was a baby, has liked to jump up onto my shoulder (although back then, it was climbing rather than jumping!). And the way all of them come running when I bring out the treat bag never fails to make me laugh. With winter coming on, I’m a bit worried about how to properly care for them, but it looks like some toys and new treats are definitely on the menu!

Deborah C Wagoner October 8th, 2016

My girl “Dumplin” was my first chicken,I actually had to peal her out of her shell (she was to weak to get it done), I took her home and wouldn’t trade her for nothing. She has an apartment lol in my home, rides on the headrest when we go out, has to eat whatever I’m having and loves getting on Facebook.

Evette October 8th, 2016

My chickens just Love Meal worms!!! They also really like applesauce, watermelon, cracked corn and meal worm ice cubes. I just put a little of each in ice cubes trays and freeze. Great treat on hot days 🙂

Rachael October 8th, 2016

My girls’ favorite treat is when I buy them a whole pumpkin and just crack it through the middle and let them have at it! Last year, we also contacted a local florist who was doing a pumpkin carving event and got all their leftover “guts”…. It lasted us a long time after dividing it up and putting some in the freezer for later in the year. Plus the seeds are a great dewormer!

Tiffany Hook October 8th, 2016

I love my girls so much I spoil them with meal worms flock blocks they deserve the best they not only give me yummy eggs I enjoy watching them they deserve the best hope they win 🐔🐔🐔 i

Tamara October 8th, 2016

My Ladies LOVE being hand fed cherry tomatoes and frozen blueberries. They also love when I pull the nasturtiums plants and leave them for them to scratch through. I am making freezer packs for them of the “better” scraps from cooking (seeds from squash, pepper seeds and tops, etc),, adding in some mealworms and some sunflower seeds and storing them for when I don’t have something fresh to give them over the winter.

Tiffany Hook October 8th, 2016

I give my girls meal worms and flock blocks they love them they deserve the best not only because they give me yummy eggs but I love watching them they deserve the best I hope they win 🐔🐔🐔🐔

Debra October 8th, 2016

I put lettuce in a wire treat ball and hang it in the coop. They immediately start tearing it apart.

Lori vasquez domonkos October 8th, 2016

If my girls could pick, their favorite method of spoiling would be free ranging, when I open that coop door I stand back because it is a sight to see. Unfortunately they can’t do this all the time. I also raise exotic finches and grasskeets, I save their tossed seeds and shells to give my chickens when I cant turn them loose, they love it!

Erica Condra October 8th, 2016

My girls love the mealworms they go crazy when I walk towards their cage it’s like they know what I am coming with. I have one that is like a puppy and jumps up at the bag, so cute.

Zoe Ward October 8th, 2016

I absolutely love giving my chickens mealworms! The come running from anywhere when they hear that bag! The rooster is always so happy when he sees me with the bag of mealworms it amazing! #flockspoiler

Sarah Bradrick October 8th, 2016

My girls go crazy for either mealworms or cracked grains. All I have to do is shake the bag and I have 6 little chickens lined up at the fence awaiting their treats lol. They also like their cucumber piñatas and kale bouquets. They keep them pecking those things, not each other.

Amanda Sharp October 8th, 2016

Well, since my flock keeps growing (chicken math) I need lots of treats! My girls love mealworms and shelled sunflower seeds mixed. I keep them in a cup in the run. It’s a sure fire way to get then back inside if I need to confine them during the day. They literally fly back inside!

Ellen October 8th, 2016

My ladies love the chubby mealworms. These are especially great for times they can’t freerange for ‘goodies’!

Virgina October 8th, 2016

My girls (and roo) really enjoy mealworms and cold watermelon

Wendy W October 8th, 2016

My girls love Blackberries! It becomes a game to them
One girl runs around the pen and breaks off a little bit.
Anther girl picks up berry and runs around. I think they
like how the berries break up in sections.

KyleDoherty October 8th, 2016

I make them homade treat nuggets. Combine flax seed, meal worms, add in some fresh or dried herbs like oregano, sage garlic. Melt some coconut oil and mix together spoon in ice cube trays and refrigerate until set . They go crazy for them and they are a healthy!

Karl Commers October 8th, 2016

My Princesses love to play in the yard with the spoiler of mealworms and they also love black sunflower seeds

Susan Hunter October 8th, 2016

I cut up pieces of watermelon or banana for them in the late afternoon. They get mealworms at noon, although they learned how to open the container so often help themselves during the day. I also peel apples, pears, and other fruit in their yard. They gather around and grab what goes to the ground. They come to the gate at noon, four, and six to get their treats and squawk loudly until I come.

Jackie S October 8th, 2016

I bought mealworms as a treat for my hens a few months ago. They loved them so much that I have since started a meal worm farm so that I can treat my girls more often. I also enjoy making them Popsicles on hot days using kitchen scraps and freezing them in ice cube trays. These ladies are spoiled and they have t even laid an egg yet!!!

Mary Beth October 8th, 2016

What a great idea for gift giving to chicken lovers. I know my girls would enjoy all those treats

Denise October 8th, 2016

My ladies love the mealworms.

April October 8th, 2016

Chubby meal worms are by far, my girls favorites.

Rebecca October 8th, 2016

My girls look like soccer players with the yellow ball filled with meal worms

Cheryl Thompson October 8th, 2016

My girls love when I break ground for a new garden or flowerbed. I work a while then sit back with a drink and watch them enjoy playing in the fresh upturned dirt. They come running if they see me with a shovel or hoe. Sometimes I get scolded if I just go outside and not dig up something.

Judy Nordstrom October 8th, 2016

My hens absolutely love Mealworms! They also love free ranging and would enjoy the basket of treats!

Bobbie Yelvington October 8th, 2016

As this is my first year having chickens I am still discovering what my girls like.
I have found they love mealworms. Friends give me corn, watermelon, beet greens
and the like. I thought this spring I will install a swing and maybe one in the coop for this winter.
Been looking for ideas to keep them entertained and cozy over winter.
Loving this new experience. My girls are so much fun. 🐔

Jan Beckert October 8th, 2016

My girls just love their meal worms. They also love shredded carrots.

andi October 8th, 2016

fresh corn on the cob and watermelon are the go-to spoilers

HEATHER PAPP October 8th, 2016

My chickens LOVE mealeorms, but go pretty crazy for leftover fruit also! Giving them a pumpkin to peck at today! #flockspoiler

Kelsey Daisey October 8th, 2016

My ladies love everything from veggies and top quality oatmeal to crickets and meal worms. They dine like royalty! I’ve been experimenting on what treats they like the most, since i’m fairly new to the chicken community, and crickets are defiantly their favorite but meals worms are close second place. The best part is I can just say ladies and all my babies come running over since they free range on our farm. I also bought them all off of my pet chicken so i’m glad I was able to find this website to give me my friendly and beautiful ladies! They make my life so much better and fun! <3

My Girls are SPOILED! Every morning I give them fresh chopped Kale mixed with oats, raisins and HAPPY HEN TREATS mealworms. I sprinkle fresh herbs in the coop and run and made a “winter” run with a swing for them to play in and keep them away from the snow! In the evening I play music from my Ipod and let them spread their wings and fly around my garden. In preparing for winter I have been looking for some way to get my relaxing music in the coop. I went on mypetchicken today and found the Music for chickens! I would love to spoil them with that! They would LOVE the ultimate spoiled flock! My coworkers think I spoil them rotten and even asked me what I feed my dogs since my chickies have it so good! 🙂

Our flock of 30 cannot deny their avid love of watermelon, bananas, clovers and bugs of all kinds! We feed them our scraps, and they always go right for the watermelon rinds and banana pieces! They free range and mow down clovers first, and then everything else shortly after 🙂 Oh yeah, and they’ll attack you if you have and seed mixes on you!

Glenda Learn October 8th, 2016

We are new to having chickens but have been the best birthday present for my husband. They are a delight to watch and he loves figuring out what the best treat of the week is for them. Tomatoes, leafy greens from the garden and an ear of corn send them nuts. We freeze it it the day is going to be hot.

Andrea October 8th, 2016

My girls love meal worms, red lentils, pumpkin seeds, and cuttings from fresh fruits and veggies, but I have to say they are spoiled the most when I serve them warm oatmeal or grits on cold winter mornings!

Marion O'Neill October 8th, 2016

My girls love mealworms and I’m sure I hear them saying” woorrmmms” when I bring out the bag. They also get fresh kale and grapes, as well as the occasional Flock Block.

My flock adores their mealworms, and crushed eggshells. They also love oatmeal and other cooked grains!

Monica Sims October 8th, 2016

Megan Stark October 8th, 2016

My girls love free-ranging, they will literally shoot out of the coop. They also come running when they heard the meal-worm bag rustle. They also gt kitchen scraps and even organic raspberries, their favorite.

Betsy Bradley October 8th, 2016

mealworms , suet, treat balls, anything to keep them smiling and the love all my pet chickens products.

Sara Katz October 8th, 2016

As I read this blog I am sitting out in the back yard keeping my 6 new chicks company as they spend some day time in their Peck ‘n Play enclosure, flying and flapping and running around trying out new things. Today they got clover, dandlelion flowers, apples, leaves and stems of comfrey, basil, parsley, celery, and chard from the garden — all cut up into little bits for them. They learn new things each day, and today it is dust bathing, so all six are arranged in a line half submerged, basking away in nice dry dirt. I put diatomaceous earth down and they spread it into the dirt while getting their primo dust bath. Spoil these chookies? Good heavens, no! Earlier today I spent about an hour sitting on the floor of the bathroom they have temporarily taken over in the house, doing the crossword puzzle while all six little peeps crowded in a pile on my lap for naps. It is a bit of work raising chicks, but I suspect I will miss having them indoors when they graduate to running with the old hens in the coop.

Najwan Zoubi October 8th, 2016

My Girls and Rooster Boy (White Silkie) love and gooo nuts for mealworms and corn… the best of the best, I will be clapping for them from far away and they will all come running for that (talking about 34 chickens). Very sweet, love them so much.

Pamela Cacciatore October 8th, 2016

I just purchased my first chickens from here… They are so cute and they are doing well. My kids love them so much.

I have not tried any of your products yet because they are only a week old but I am looking forward to spoiling them.

Dawn Craddock October 8th, 2016

My girls love cold sliced cucumbers in summer, suet cakes hanging in their pen and when I have time to hang out with them…it’s hand fed meal worms!! Doc, the rooster hasn’t grasped the hand feeding thing yet. He just nips at the ends of my fingers!

Suzanne October 8th, 2016

I spoil my chickens in many ways. Cold watermelon with blueberries & grapes on a hot day. Warm blueberry oatmeal on a cold day. Their favorite is lemon blueberry pound cake. They love grated carrots. All organic of course.

PL Packer October 8th, 2016

My girls and one rooster, Louie, get a warm breakfast on cold mornings. Warm oatmeal with chopped vegetables, sunflower seeds, crushed eggshells, meatscraps or Chubby Mealworms. Sometimes, if I have a pot of beans or stew I’ll warm up the last of the pot for them in the morning. I have 6 laying hens and 15 pullets that should start laying between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I will be growing red wrigglers and sprouting oats and barley for them this winter. I’m hoping to cut down on feed costs for the chickens and the horse this winter, she will get sprouted grain as well.

Karen Puckey October 8th, 2016

My girls love mealworms. They can’t get enough of them.

We spoil are girls with “trail mix” a variety of fruit seeds meal worms and snacks when the weather is nice, when it’s cooler we spoil them with warm oatmeal breakfast including fruit seeds etc. when it’s hot we freeze fruit and seeds in ice muffin tons and for entertainment we hang a lettuce or cabbage in the run and have a chicken swing.

TJ October 8th, 2016

Wow! I am amazed at ALL the comments!! Great ideas for us all! will note down some new ones that I liked. I saw a couple of newbies wrote in, so I will suggest a thing or two for them. (Sorry so long.)

I have a mixed flock, so it is a real pleasure to see the variety of plumage lined up near the gate waiting for their ‘before-bed’ snack each day. They watch intently for any activity that indicates I am ‘on my way’. So cute!! I know they don’t really need it, but I hate to disappoint them. Plus, it helps to keep them friendly and to train them to come to me if they get loose, etc.

In the wintertime, extra protein before bed can give them the energy they need to keep warm, so I throw mealworms or scratch with a little corn in it to help supply heat….just not too much. A fat bird is not healthy and won’t lay well, either.

But, a lean bird can’t stay warm. Birds will burn calories to stay warm and can grow thin over a cold winter, so check your birds to make sure they are holding their weight. Feed a balanced poultry feed to supply most of their calories. Treats are just that. Just a bit, only a small percentage of their diet. I found I have to increase the amount of feed I give in the winter. They eat more and more eagerly as they attempt to stay warm. In the spring, I can cut back a bit on the amount once the grass and bugs are out. But, occasionally check to be sure everyone is getting enough.

My chickens LOVE to eat ICE in the winter! They ignore the warm water I bring for my goats and prefer the cold, icy water that sat out all night. If there is a skim of ice on top or on top of our livestock trough, I break it up for the flock and they gobble it up!! Not sure why. But, I do offer warm foods which they also devour. Cool or frozen treats in the summer. I will chill our leftover corn cobs or melon rinds, then offer them the next day when it’s really hot. They love SO many foods, but I would have to say that strawberries and tomatoes are their all-time favorites. I think they are instinctively drawn to the red color.

One more thing….we occasionally exhibit or travel our birds. I make mini flock blocks combining gelatin and seeds/grains/mealworms in old ice cube trays. I store them in the freezer and take out only what I need. I feel good knowing that my birds have a treat to help alleviate the stress and boredom that occasional caging can cause. Mealworms are also a good treat, but the blocks take longer to eat and provide an opportunity for pecking. The only problem that arises is the ‘treat envy’ of the other birds in the vicinity when they see what my birds are eating! They want some, too! If I see their owner caring for them, I will offer them a flock block to share with their birds, or a sprinkling of meal worms, if they prefer. (Never feed another person’s bird something they haven’t approved, first. Don’t assume it is okay without asking.)

Karen Tackett October 8th, 2016

My lil peeps love it when I mix fresh veggies with rice or noodles. Mealworm snacks are a hit as well.

Julie Dillon October 8th, 2016

My girls come inside for about an hour most days – they get cuddles, rice, and get to watch some TV!

Athena Fritcher October 8th, 2016

On hot days I give them frozen Blueberries the rest of the time they get room temp Blueberries. I also give them grapes, scratch and I pull weeds from my front yard and dump the weeds over the fence to my chickens.

NORM KING October 8th, 2016

AHHH MY CHICKENS DO NOT EXIST ONLY IN ORDER TO PRODUCE ANOTHER EGG…THEY EXIST TO AMUSE THEMSELVES TO PRAISE BEING SPOILED …WITH THE ULTIMATE!

Shannon F. October 8th, 2016

Since our first chicks are only almost a week old, we spoil them with chickie puffs, a nice big yet cozy brooder, and lots of love.

Tess October 9th, 2016

My girls go crazy for watermelon! I buy watermelon every couple of weeks and our family eats half and the girls get the rest. Happy chickens lay better eggs!

MJ October 9th, 2016

The girls are spoiled by good fermented organic feed every few days, they get a trio of different sprouts, tomatos, cucumber, red peppers, and squash. They eat more vegetables than the average person!!

Susie H October 9th, 2016

My favorite, or I think the girls’ favorite, would be the Ultimate Spoiled Flock Package! Our rescue hen sat alongside my son at the piano once (spoiled alert!) and bopped along as he played. The sweetest thing ever. Would love to treat her and/or the main flock to the Pet Acoustic speakers! The main flock gets daily mealworms treats and is spoiled by me accepting “backrides” – one of ours was injured by a hawk as a pullet, and everyday needs her daily “hug” from me by jumping on my back and hanging out for a while! Every now and then the others take turns too. Thanks for offering these!

Joyce Saunders October 9th, 2016

I spoil my 10 hens and their little rooster friend by giving them a very large fenced in area to spend their days in and then letting them free range around the yard a couple of hours before they head into their coop for the night. I grow watermelons for them, although they don’t grow too big up here in the north, it’s still a favorite treat for them! I enjoy having a community of chicken lovers like myself in My Pet Chicken who understand that chickens are pets and can bring great enjoyment to our lives! I feel bad for the folks who have never experienced the joy of raising chickens.

Pat October 9th, 2016

Our chickens look forward to getting lots of healthy leftovers as treats from our family of five every morning when I let them out into the yard. They spend the non winter days cleaning our yard of bugs and in the snowy winter days I give them treats and toys to help them stay content inside the coop.

Barbara October 9th, 2016

Our chickens are free range – dawn to dusk. They have the greatest chicken life ever. Their favorite treat is when we work in the gardens and turn up worms for them. Well, maybe it is the sunflower seeds they come running to get at the saddle shed every time they see us there. Or maybe it is the watermelon. Or maybe the fresh horse droppings they love to scratch through. Or maybe the oats the horses leave behind in bunks. 🙂

Chelsea October 9th, 2016

My girls love Chubby Mealworms! If I leave the bag out, where they can reach it, they will drag it around and peck at it until the bag tears.

Chelsea October 9th, 2016

Nichole Hall October 9th, 2016

My girls love mealworms and yogurt! I walk out to the coop and they meet halfway. And I love that the treats they like the most are healthy for them!!

Karen October 9th, 2016

I spoil my chickens by free-ranging them for a while each afternoon when I get home from work, and can keep an eye on them!

Amber Shorter October 9th, 2016

My girls love a flock block! Scratch grains on cool mornings make them happy. Every time we walk out the back door, they come running to see if we have any fruit or veggie scraps. We would love to win the basket to see what other products are available for our ladies.

Elena Buchwitz October 9th, 2016

My chickens love mealworms,sunflower seeds,scrambled eggs and cheese!

Monica Sterk October 9th, 2016

I haven’t gotten my chickens yet, but I’m so excited that they are ordered and coming soon from MyPetChicken! I can’t wait to spoil them, especially with the tasty mealworms… I bet they will go crazy for those!
Can’t wait to get them and try it out!

LYNN SMITH October 9th, 2016

my chickens love the mealworm. They go ballistic over them.

Melissa October 9th, 2016

My chickens love the mealworms. It’s like French fries for birds. They live scratch and any kind of fruit.

Brooke R October 9th, 2016

Right now I would love the boredom buster OR the lay or bust! What great packages!!

Brenda October 9th, 2016

Mealworms & oregano!

Ashley B October 9th, 2016

Ssshhhh…. On super hot days, I let them into the house with the AC on. So spoiled!

Andrea October 9th, 2016

Mealworms, scrambled eggs, and blueberries are the flock favorites around here.

Sheila B October 9th, 2016

My girls just love Watermelon in the summer when i freeze it with water and berries/seed, in the fall they love pumpkin!!!

Rita Chapman October 9th, 2016

I let mine run every evening, they return to their coop at sundown. This often means the mulch around plants gets rearranged as they dig for worms and bugs, lol. They go bonkers for mealworms and I give them fruit and oatmeal as treats. They enjoyed cleaning out our garden as the season ended, tomatoes and bugs.

Kelsey October 9th, 2016

The flick squares loom awesome!

Stacy October 9th, 2016

My girl’s are fenced in but free range in our yard. They love attention and come when called because there is always something good waiting for them. Ultimate favorite is mealworms.

Rachael Lewandowski October 9th, 2016

I like to spoil the girls with mealworms.

Lynn M October 9th, 2016

I like to treat my girls good; they’re such good company when I’m outside working in the garden. And, at certain times of the year, they do their share of garden work! I start my spoiling in the coop by keeping it fresh-smelling and comfy for them. I put “curtains” over the nesting boxes as soon as I discovered an egg eater a couple of years ago. The curtains put a stop to that, and all the ladies seem to enjoy having a stress-free, dark and quiet nesting area. In summer, they get lots of frozen treats and garden-fresh produce. On those icy cold winter days, there are big pans of warm oatmeal, sometimes with scrambled eggs, and scratch grains in the late afternoon to help keep them warm at night. One of my hens, an EE with a scissor beak, gets special spoiling, since she has difficulty eating and can’t forage well. I make her a wet bowl everyday, and add various treats that I know she loves, like mealworms and shelled sunflower seeds. She’ll be five years old next spring, and she’s still strong and healthy!

Debbie G October 9th, 2016

My egg-cellent ladies love the meal worms. They will run to the can to show where they are kept.

Bonny Davis October 9th, 2016

My girls love BBQ days. Lots of watermelon, BBQ corn on the cob. They LOVE salmon! They get to run sound in the yard with canine buddies.

Talyn Klemmetson October 9th, 2016

Mealie worms! Mealie worms!

Heather Hutchinson October 9th, 2016

My chickens get their treats every day. They love their slaw, grapes, corn, mealworms and some Seabuck7. They go nuts over the watermelon in the summer and a funny one they go crazy over Vienna sausages of all things! For boredom buster I hanging a head of cabbage in the coop so they can pick at. And they love their oatmeal in the winter to keep them warm! I hope I win for the girls 😉

Sandy October 9th, 2016

Mealworms seem to be a favorite of my hens

Tasha Poole October 9th, 2016

My chickens special treat are dried mealworms! Anytime they hear the bag they all come running!!!!!

Sarah October 9th, 2016

Our Ladies and Gents would love anything in the Boredom Busting pack most of all.

Stephen October 9th, 2016

We have a couple grapevines. We don’t give them a lot, but the members of our little flock love some fresh vine-ripened grapes. My wife and I get some, our flock some, and then we leave some on the vines for wild birds to enjoy as well. There’s not a lot to go around, but we all get to enjoy them.

Sarah October 9th, 2016

Our Ladies and Gents are so easy to please. They love any treat we offer to them, in moderation of course. <3

Dina October 9th, 2016

Mine love frozen watermelon all summer and our fall pumpkins – and of course mealworms!

Emily V October 9th, 2016

Ice cold watermelon in the heat of summer, my girls see me coming and go nuts, by the end of the day there is nothing but a thin green rind and a bunch of happy chickens.

Tina Garst October 9th, 2016

We spoil ours with Mealworms!

Melissa Johnson October 9th, 2016

We live in a COLD place, so I spoil my girls with a nice boxed in steel caged dog run with an electric dog bowl for their water and oatmeal on the cold mornings!

Lisa Vonder Haar October 9th, 2016

My favorite spoiler from My Pet Chicken is the Boredom Buster.

I catch crickets for them, give them frozen peas in ice water on hot summer days. Put a fan in the coop window on hot summer nights. They really love plain organic yogurt and mealworms.

Cathy S. October 9th, 2016

I give my girls meal worms as treats! They all come running when they recognize that bag. such spoiled girls and I love it! I have a Quaker Parrot and she is a very messy eater and I give my flock the seeds and left over munchies from the parrot to them…super treat day!

Barb October 9th, 2016

My girls favorite is mealworms.they come running when I shake the bucket .

Heather Ausher October 9th, 2016

I do not actually have my chickens yet. I have their coop built and run almost done and plan to be getting my flock first thing this spring. I am very excited and can not wait but I do want to make sure I have everything in place before hand. Growing up on a farm our chickens loved meal worms so I am sure my girls will love them also. I have seen the treat balls on many videos while researching and I am planning on buying one for sure!

Jody Wilbur October 9th, 2016

Our girls all love meal worms. My favorite of the bunch loves peanuts. Being an Ameraucana, she’s a little taller than the Easter Egger & Red Star so she stretches her neck up just above them and eats them from my fingers through the fencing.

kelly Lockerman October 9th, 2016

Watermelon, especially on hot Southern days!

Sarah Farrand October 9th, 2016

I like to give my chickens watermelon in the summer, and pumpkin in the fall.

Rose Evans October 9th, 2016

My Flock gets Fruit& Veggie and Breads toss-outs from a grocery store 3x a week !

Suzanne Byron October 9th, 2016

So excited to try the Lay or Bust! Currently spoiling our girls with weekly sprouted fenugreek seeds 😀

Renaz October 9th, 2016

I spoil my girls by keeping them healthy the natural way. I’m always on the look out for the best organic methods. The Natural Chicken Care Kit sounds great.

Nancy October 9th, 2016

My chickens think they’ve died and gone to heaven when they see the tin I keep the mealworms in! Then they hear the crinkle of the peanut bag and think no, surely that must be heaven. Then they see the orange bucket that I collect weeds and garden clippings in… And so it goes in the life of spoiled chicks!

Amelia Higgins October 9th, 2016

My girls love warm oatmeal in the winter, especially if I toss in some dried mealworms.

Karen Parsons October 9th, 2016

We love to spoil our bitties with fresh trimmings of vegetables and Chubby’s meal worms. Our neighbors bring fresh fruit trimmings too. We haven’t had any bullying because they have enough room to roam. We sit out with them and they come sit in our laps looking for treats.

Tana Cox October 9th, 2016

Mealworms…they go nuts!

Stephanie Wilson October 9th, 2016

My girls love their meal worms. They come running when they hear the bag opening. I like to leave treat squares when I won’t be home to give treats. They love them too!

Rosemary Polizotto October 9th, 2016

My flock is molting and would love some treats! They love mealworms. Well, they like anything except carrots.
Thank you!

terence wynn October 9th, 2016

Nut and berry seed mix, they love it and their eggs taste delicious.

Cheryl Kinjerski October 9th, 2016

Lauren celentano October 9th, 2016

Chicken favorite? Chubby meal worms. My favorite? Anything in that healing basket, green goo and hem saddles stress a go to

Laura Clark October 9th, 2016

My chickens love a fresh bail of straw. They spend all day clucking and scratching like it’s chicken Christmas. #flockspoiler

Jennifer chambers October 9th, 2016

My girls love their mealworms! But they’re not picky, they love all the veggie scraps from the kitchen. In the summer I use them all to make ice blocks for perfectly chilled chickens!

Melissa October 9th, 2016

The girls wait for me by our front porch when they see me in the kitchen- they know I usually have some tasty veggie or fruit scraps for them!

Skye Stott October 9th, 2016

My chickens (three roosters and 21 hens) love mealworms! They come into the garage and stare at the bag – verbalizing all the while! (they free range when we are home) I spoil them by making them fresh pasta every other day with elbow noodles, Heart Smart sauce and a hefty amount of large curd cottage cheese mixed in for calcium. They practically lick the pan! My boyfriend suspends cob corn (seasonally) or watermelon slices from plant holders around the yard and from strings hanging from the enclosure ceiling. They play ‘tetherball’ with it until the corn cob or watermelon rind is picked clean.

Danielle Edwards October 9th, 2016

My favorite flock spoiler is frozen apple mash. I help make apple cider every fall and I freeze the leftover apple mash in freezer bags and give them to my chickens in the summer. It’s a fun cool treat for them to peck at in the heat!

Jean Phillips October 9th, 2016

We love the mealworms and they love when I put the blocks in their baskets and I am ordering the boredom busters as we speak . Would love to win thiis . Sorry About the double post i put my wrong email

Eric Swanner October 9th, 2016

Raisins. I have them literally jumping for raisins.

Keeping the coops clean.

Opening the garden gate for them.

My birds come when called, they know it means something good.

Nancy Nixon October 9th, 2016

Meal worms, dandelions, melons, bananas and fresh spinach (yummy) are top on their list of treats. I also have an apple tree with great organic apples of which I share with my flock. All their treats are given in healthy portions.
Big Bertha, Annie and Quinti have a 20′ by 40′ home with a even more protected 6′ x 6′ covered “bedroom”. They are allowed to play in the adjoining back yard an hour or two a day.
They are also friends with Puddles, Suerte and Lucky and are happy to share there abode with these duck.

kim heiskala October 9th, 2016

There are many ways I spoil my girls. 1)Every week I buy 2-3 bunches of greens (chard, Kale, Dandelion, Mustard) along with fresh herbs and put them into the food processor to make the leaves smaller & bite sized = no choking or getting stuck in the crop. 2) frozen watermelon on a hot day 3) I grow small patches of mixed greens from seed, protected until big enough to forage 4) they ALWAYS love meal worms

Mary October 9th, 2016

Our girls LOVE mealworms.

Megann October 9th, 2016

My flock loves mealworms. They get all sorts of treats but mealworms are by far their favorite. When they see or hear the bag open they go crazy. Sometimes I mix it in their feed and they will dump their bowls over to pick out the mealworms.

Sarah October 9th, 2016

I like cabbage balls and this time of year pumpkins. But today I made the first ever meat garlands. Yes, I poked holes in meat,pushed nylon twine through it and added the meat, then hung it in the runs. Not only did they love it but it was highly amusing!

Deanna Berg October 10th, 2016

My girls love mealworms and raisins.

Lindsey October 10th, 2016

I love to spoil my chickens in many ways! The latest one is that I just wrapped all of their perches in pipe insulation in preparation for winter. The insulation is squishy and warms up much faster than the wood. I also just gave them a bunch of peanuts! Which they love!

Karen Brown October 10th, 2016

Spoilng the flock:
by being a personal attendant on the predusk outing and they spoil me:
by lowering my blod pressure watching them strutt their stuff.

Lisa Plasters October 10th, 2016

My girls get homemade wheat bread and cut up garden veggies daily. their special treats are grapes, meal worms and Cheerios. I live for watching them get excited and many of them will jump to grab a treat from my hands or come towards me at full speed when they hear me shake the Cheerio box. They make me laugh at their excitement. I really love them!

Deborah J Adamski October 10th, 2016

Awesome, love this! My birds love all your ideas and suggestions! I have lots of different kinds of bird and they just love treats; mealworms, seeds, fruits and vegetables, love all your help!

Barlow Clark-Schoeb October 10th, 2016

Donald Baird October 10th, 2016

My chickens love onions and they get them at least once a week!

Mari Lewis October 10th, 2016

Oh my goodness, our girls are so spoiled. They are all at the doorstep every single day, morning and evening, clucking for their food. They get treats of mealworms and the various Happy Hens mixtures. A couple of the girls push the others away, but they all take part in the treats. We have one very small breed of chicken, and she knows to wait for hers as we put her treats aside in a different spot. 🙂 They are so much fun!

Kathy Briggs October 10th, 2016

Watermelon – all kinds of fruits and corn pops….(make corn pops from fresh corn and creamed corn – freeze in muffin tins) – and they can’t get enough during the hot summers in Texas! We also do frozen watermelon pops during this time.

Amy st. Hilaire October 10th, 2016

We spoil ours by letting them free range, lots of boredom buster treats and love. We love to spend time with them everyday.

Laura Couch October 10th, 2016

Our sweet girls & our one sweet boy are still pretty young. They’re about 4 weeks old but definitely big enough to spoil. They love their chests getting rubbed. They come right up to our hands for the next rub. It may be spoiling them but it spoils my human girls, too, to be able to let them sit on us and rest while we are watching TV.

Jerome October 10th, 2016

We spoil our chickens with Happy Hens meal worms. They love them!! 😆

Jenny Jutt October 10th, 2016

Amy Sanchez October 10th, 2016

Oh, the yellow treat ball filled with Chubby meal worms. My hens know exactly what that is and come running when they see me bring it out. My Jersey Giant kicks it around like a soccer ball and the others follow right behind her to peck up the treats that roll out. Hours of fun for them and hours of fun for hubby and I who sit there and laugh at their antics.

Kamila October 10th, 2016

Mine love sunflower seeds, mealworms and carrot greens. But their favorite is when I let them out in the mornings to have free reign of the backyard and vegetable garden (after everything has been harvested) they go crazy!

Milissa Henderson October 10th, 2016

My Lil’ Chickies are pretty spoiled! Anything from their treat bag full of a homemade scratch,dried fruit/veg mixed in their feed,frozen fruit ice cubes, fresh oatmeal in the mornings, apple cider in their water, they’re coop smelling like lemon & lavender or their hamster ball filled with treats they chase all around the yard. I’ll let you pick!

Stacy Ackerman October 10th, 2016

My flock loves mealworms!

Heather Morrison October 10th, 2016

I have not had my girls very long, but have enjoyed trying new things. So far they come running at the sound of the mealworm bag. I can’t wait to let them try some of the other treats mentioned.

Sarah Cornell October 10th, 2016

My chickens love the mealworms and any treats I give them. They come running to the door of their run everytime we go outside to see them.

Laina October 10th, 2016

Spoiling my hens is one of my most favorite joys in life! I like to grow herbs and other various greens just for them. In the summer on the especially hot days, I serve a variety of frozen treats. In the winter, I’ll serve up a number of warmed dishes. I would like you all to know for a heathy gut flora, give your chickens plain yogurt. That’s right, they love it 🙂 I want to add, give the egg shells back to the chickens! They love it and it helps return the calcium they need to make the eggs. Just remember to smash them up a bit 🙂

Rebecca Hanson October 10th, 2016

I love the Boredom Busting basket. We just bought 10 acres and are building a new coop, run, and everything for our much-loved flock. My daughters use mealworms to spoil their 4-H show chickens and encourage them to be calm, patient, and easily held. In the summer, we put fruits, veggies, and berries in a large baking dish and fill it with water. Then we freeze it, so the chickens have a nutritious way to cool down and not get bored. Every fall, we get pumpkins for them to peck, eat, and investigate. In the winter, with the insect population non-existent for foraging, we grind and freeze fatty scraps from butchering and hang it in their run to peck at, like suet.

Adrienne October 10th, 2016

My six easter egger bantams – Gertrude, Ophelia, Myrtle, Fiona, Goldie, and Edith – love dried mealworms, scrambled eggs, fig cake, fresh melon, and mashed Georgia peaches mixed with their grower feed. Their nest boxes have privacy curtains and windows have matching valances, of course! Above the front window of their coop hangs a custom made sign – “Life is better with chickens.” I’ll eventually hang some chicken art inside their coop, too. 🙂 I enjoy sipping coffee and watching their silly antics. Every day they do something that makes my heart smile. I love my sweeties!

Kira-Lynne Hanson October 10th, 2016

I love My Pet Chicken! I’ve ordered about half of my flock from you. I like to fill plastic bottles with seeds and scratch, and hang it in their run for them to peck through the holes. I’ve hung up cabbage heads, too. This fall, I’m building a roost for their run out of a 4×4 post and branches. I love the Browbeaten Biddy pack, not because I have problems with my hens pecking, but because I would love the salve and wound spray for if they get hurt when they’re free-range.

Heather Avila October 10th, 2016

I live on a dairy so my girls…..and boys 🙂 love to go for walks with me in the morning. When I help get the goats and cows ready for milking they follow me along trying to grab as many bugs as they can from the ground. After milking they actually try to drink a few sips of milk from the bucket for the calves!
After their morning exercise I have to use meal worms to get them back in there coop. They love all the attention!

Des O'Bryan October 10th, 2016

My girls love their fruits and veggies, and of course any worms I provide them is a special treat. Their favorite veggies are fresh kale and red cherry tomatoes, and they love apples, blueberries, and melon. I let them out to run around the yard for a few hours after I get home from work and when they see me come out with their treats they come running with their wings swimming through the air… it is so funny to watch that it makes everyone who see them laugh.

thea rogers October 10th, 2016

My girls get mealworms in the morning and bread and grapes at night for treats.

Tammy Cicogna October 10th, 2016

I make corn in water ice cubes and my chickens love this treat on a hot day

Ami October 10th, 2016

My chickens are only 6 weeks old. So far we’ve only offered them some melon seeds as a treat, they were more interested in keeping on pecking in the dirt of their new coop but I’d love to try the items in this basket.

Luisa Taveras October 10th, 2016

My girls LOVE getting spoiled! They kno everyday they’re getting something special. In the summer months I make fruit and veggie ice cubes for them to peck on and put some in their water bowls, in the fall they get pumpkin soup, and for those cold winter mornings they’ll get warm oatmeal w/cranberries and cinnamon! 😊. They give us beautiful eggs, and jus bring us so much joy I adore them!

Coral Starr October 10th, 2016

My chickens love the Happy Treats. They would just go head over heels for one of the fun packges. My little sweet critters love your stuff and they are excited that they might get to win a goodie basket…

Naomi Graham October 10th, 2016

It is so affirming to read all these messages from people who love their chickens. My four ladies get a variety of fresh seasonal fruits and veggies and leftovers to supplement their diet. In the summer there’s the treat ball and in the winter hanging cabbages or bunches of kale, and mealworms every night year round. They love it all! This weekend I had them with me in the garden while I was digging out a weedy patch. We had so much fun together, digging and sifting the earth. They found a lot of plump worms and bugs to snack on, and it was nice to be working on a project together.

Sarah October 11th, 2016

Our ladies (and their gent) love their mealworms (of course), but also enjoy sharing watermelons and cantaloupes with us. We make sure to leave a bit of fruit on the rind and they pick them clean. They even managed to “plant” their own watermelon in the yard which formed one fruit!

Their favorite treat isn’t of our doing, however. They managed to catch a frog and worked together to enjoy it. We rather liked the frog so maybe a gift basket would help our save amphibians. 🙂

Misti October 11th, 2016

Our girls love mealworms, right now they are loving pumpkins as well!

Carolyn Wickert October 11th, 2016

My girls absolutely love cold watermelon on those hot summer days. I planted kale and marigolds just for them. In the colder months I bring home beef suet for them. They also enjoy sitting on their swinging perch and an occasional cinnamon roll. Mealworms and cricket they come running for. They will be moving into a new coop shortly that has more room and more space. I hope they enjoy the time I spent building their new home.

Sharon Bense October 11th, 2016

Boredom Busting with my chicken with oatmeal for breakfast with a crunchy topping of mealworms! Yummo!!

Lori Carter October 11th, 2016

I like to give my chickens those blocks to peck on.

M Currie October 11th, 2016

The meal worms are great, the girls love just anything from watermelon to homemade treats.

Kim Ostbye October 11th, 2016

My chickens love mealworms and pumpkins, in fact I have to put my decorative pumpkins up higher so they don’t “carve” them before I’m ready to give them one for a treat.

carol October 11th, 2016

I work at a grocery store, so every day I bring home what ever produce is being thrown away. They especially like pomegranates, tomatoes, lettuse (except iceberg), bananas and all kinds of melons.

Patricia Bernier October 11th, 2016

I am new to raising chickens. I bought 10 (3 breeds) from MyPetChicken last August and they are already a year old. I built a huge run next to their coop and they love to sleep up in the rafters at night (I live in Charleston, SC). Every morning I unlock the gate and give them table scraps from the night before. However, my boyfriend moved in with me this past June and I thought he wouldn’t have anything to do with the ladies. I was VERY wrong. He cooks specifically for them. He buys high-quality millet specifically from Russia and puts in meal worms, buckwheat, blueberries, grapes and cabbage. Sometimes he cooks the potato skins left over from a meal and any other kind of scrap (like carrots) and then feeds them in the afternoon. I usually buy live crickets from Amazon and then open the box in front of them and let them hop out and the chickens go crazy! They also love fresh watermelon on a hot summer day. Sofia (Golden Buff) especially likes ice cubes from my lemonade glass. They always come running when we have friends and family come because we give them grapes to feed them. We get eggs, so we are happy to spoil our girls. I spray their coop with a mixture of vanilla extract and sage. My friend brings me fresh lavender and basil to put in the nest boxes as well. Hurricane Matthew came through and a tree nearly missed my girls, but they were spared and we are so happy! I had to fix the fence though and they lost a tree for shade, but they are having fun jumping on the sawed off logs.

Shauna Rabinowitz October 11th, 2016

They love to dig into my raised beds where they can dig down to cool earth and dirt bathe. I have allowed them one bed to decimate before I fence it off for the winter with a cover crop. They love grapes and noodles and beans. I wish they could be out in the yard all day because they love that more than any food treat but I am afraid of predatory cats that have recently been coming around. My cats are fine with the chickens, but not all are…

Steven Bowers October 11th, 2016

Happy Hen Mealworms, I don’t think these can be topped! Everyone gets excited over these.

Sophie October 11th, 2016

My chickens are the sweetest girls; one crucial gift I give them is my love, and they return their own with valiance. The hens appreciate a good free range; my favorite way to spoil them is by letting them enjoy these exploits, and feast upon the earth’s bounty. When the air mists the ground with droplets of rain, we search for worms. On days of fair weather, we hunt crickets by the window well, or moths in the gully. Such is the way of the flock. My head-peck particularly enjoys the sweeter treats of nature, and she’s ecstatic over the berries of the bush that burns. Chickens are natural beings of my highest respects, despite the fact I have to shoo them from the garden on various occasions. They follow me around for a handful of birdseed, or meal worms, or fruit. They request whole zucchinis, or pumpkins, or watermelon, to which I cannot deny. Truly, they are spoiled birds. Surely they are loved. 🙂

Joshua Bailey October 11th, 2016

I like to spoil our chickens with a tray of fruits like watermelon and cantaloupe and putting them onto a huge tray where they can feast on! Lol!

Michele Derleth October 11th, 2016

The girls are like my husband…will eat just about anything and everything if you will let them. Watermelon is the favorite in summer, tomatoes in early fall, oatmeal in winter…but if I REALLY want to get their attention scatter snacks 🙂 lol

Lisa N October 12th, 2016

I have a flock of fifty multiple breeds that are all my pets. I love my chickens like part of family
Each has their own personality.

Darcy October 12th, 2016

My chickens love meal worms. They roll the ball around and it looks like soccer going on. The older girls have it down. The younger ones try to keep up. No treats during the hurricane Matthew tho. They got to have a vacation get away in my sunroom for the night. All is well with my babies!!

Anne Taylor October 12th, 2016

My ladies LOVE the dried meal worms we give them! They naturally stay in our suburban yard, because they are hopeful of being given lovely dried meal worms! They don’t even go into our neighbors yards. This way, they can forage around in the yard for other bugs and eat all the greens they want!

kaitlyn October 12th, 2016

All of mine eat pasta , beleive it or not we feed it to them evry night.

Patty October 12th, 2016

Our rare breed hens love fresh fruits and veggies, mealworms, and live culture cottage cheese. A real favorite is live culture buttermilk left over from making butter. Got our 5th egg today!

Jacob October 12th, 2016

Lay or bust !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gabriel Edwards October 12th, 2016

My flock loves grass, pomegranate seeds, and oats!

h. g. October 12th, 2016

mealworms for sure. and teasing the dog.

Ulrike King October 12th, 2016

We have a small flock of English Orpingtons, and our bunch gets to free range whenever we are home. They love the Mealworms and all I have to do is shake the bag and they come running. They love watermelon and chopped apples.I have been fixing corn bread muffins and added chopped nuts and flax seed. I usually heat the muffins up a few seconds in the microwave and my girls and boy just love it. One of their favorite times in the yard occurs when we mow, our bunch literally follows the mower around as we stir up the bugs. Next to having their favorite spot for taking a good ole dust bath our flock loves to bask in the sunlight and observe all the happenings around them, which include our cats, pigs and all the other critters. It is such a joy to watch. I love to talk and sing to my little babies and to do a little “chicken-sitten”.

Amy Lea October 12th, 2016

On Thanksgiving, my girls get a special warmed lard and seed and mealworm dinner. To fatten them up for winter. And to give them thanks for being such good hens!

Isbel O. October 12th, 2016

I would like to win the lay or bust spoiler for my girls. I spoil my chickens by letting them out and giving them dried mealworms.

Aireal Chapman October 12th, 2016

My girls favorite treat is frozen watermelon on a hot day, they like it so much they come running every time they see me carry something red!

WVChickens October 12th, 2016

My chickens love table scraps. Else, they eat bugs all Summer, and lay nice healthy eggs. 🙂 I think they would love a care basket. What a treat! That is why I am voting for my flock to win. 😉
Happy National Farmer’s Day to my fellow chicken keepers, and small time farmers.

s.day October 13th, 2016

I spoil my ladybirds often as able.They got bored and to give them some fun..or i hope they would have fun..a small bright colored plastic ball.they roll it around often and play. Also ,a homemade peanut butter jar toy.i poked holes in it and fill it with grit..and they REALLLY like that toy.my spouse likes to give them grubs and let them out to run around the field for a bit each day and my children love giving them handfulls of green grass.sometimes we give our ladybirds vegetables and blueberries and different treats from time to time when able.

Jenet Tang October 13th, 2016

I would love the browbeaten biddy please! The items in the package seem so useful!

I spoil my chickens with bird seed! They also love grapes and such! Or if they were lucky, my dad gives them small snails or pill bugs to eat. Back when one of them was just a chick, it even chased after my sisters and I for food. Sometimes they would even put on their good behavior and cease with the bullying for them!

Thank you for the opportunity!

Ras Charrie October 13th, 2016

I cannot fully describe the enjoyment I receive from raising my flock of guys and gals! Never grew up with chickens, but happened into a farm feed store one spring and saw the little fuzzies and thought “how hard can this be”? That was three years ago, and my flock has grown ten fold. I feel blessed in the fact that the extra eggs go to feed many at a local homeless shelter, that I have been able to evoke a curiosity and an understanding of how birds grow and where food comes from to the neighborhood kids, and for the peace I receive from caring for and learning each bird’s personality. I spoil them rotten and have given them most of an acre to safely run around in, so if I were to choose something useful, it would be the “Browbeaten Biddy” care package for chickens because of a few hens that seem to be favorites of one of the guys.

Cindy Frink October 13th, 2016

Our chickens know that their getting a treat as soon as my husband starts to whistle. We get single serve whole corn for them. We will either let them eat it out of the container or our hands. Once in awhile we will add mealworms to the mix for an extra treat. They love it either way.

Sadie B. October 13th, 2016

Natural Chicken Care – green goo is our favorite.

Star October 14th, 2016

I love the care package! It would be amazing because my neighborhood has raccoons, and I sometimes hear them trying to get in the coop. If anyone got hurt, the care package would be the best thing. It’s kind of hard to buy stuff for my chickens because I am just a kid, and my parents don’t like them. The care package would be amazing!

Lissa October 14th, 2016

Thanks to everyone for entering! Posts after midnight, Oct 14, 2016 have missed the deadline for entry, but we’ll still display them so everyone can see how you spoil your flock. Winners will be contacted soon–check your email!

No Limits Eastern Shore October 14th, 2016

Hi! We are a nonprofit, day program for adult survivors of brain injury located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We keep chickens in our yard in order to help our members learn how to care for the hens as well as selling their eggs to raise funds! It gets super hot here in the summer, so we take cans of frozen corn (or other fruits and veggies) and pour them into a cupcake/muffin baking tray and then freeze them! In just a few hours we get several, frozen healthy treats that keep our chickens busy AND cool at the same time! We also love to give them any scrap veggies that are grown in our garden as well!

Claire Snyder October 14th, 2016

My hens really go for corn-on-the-cob, cantaloupe, and mealworms. In fact, when I call them back into their yard and coop after free range time they come a runnin’ because they know they will get mealworms for a treat.

Tiffany October 14th, 2016

Fresh fruits, veggies and mealworms!!

Dawn October 14th, 2016

My chickens love fresh ears of sweet corn and tomatoes from the garden. It’s OK if the tomatoes are a bit blemished or the corn has a nice green insect larva!

Anita Morris October 14th, 2016

I do my best to keep everything as clean as possible for them, they spend the day free ranging the yard and really enjoy my worm bed out back. I spend a great deal of time sitting with and loving on my flock, I even rock and sing to them and they enjoy our bonding time. We keep each other happy, they are all my babies and they know it.

Brandi West October 14th, 2016

My chickens go crazy for dried mealworms and scrambled eggs. They also love scratch and corn, but for them nothing gets better that mealworms and eggs. Everytime I go outside to give the chickens a treat they go absolutely bonkers, running and flying towards me. It’s crazy but fun to see.

Cheryl O. October 14th, 2016

We cook treats for our little flock daily. Oatmeal and veggies are favorites. Sometimes I feel like we cook more for the chickens than we do for the family…lol

Elizabeth Castaneda October 14th, 2016

I spoil my girls with pomegranates almost daily when in season because I have two pomegranate trees in my yard. They also get worms pretty often. I throw them bugs from the garden. I hand feed them kale. I love spoiling my ladies.

Lena October 15th, 2016

My girls and roo absolutely love meal worms and cabbage. They come a running if I shake the meal worm bag and go crazy when I hang a fresh cabbage from the tree for them to jump up to eat.

Debora Olmstead October 15th, 2016

My favorite thing to do for my chickens is during the summer time. We grow tomatoes and greenbeans on our fences for them as a treat, give them frozen fruits and veggies but that’s not the ultimate. The ultimate thing I do that they love the most is their misters. They wait by the faucet to get turned on so they can play in the mist like little kids. My Silkies make mud puddles and roll around in them like little pigs, it’s the happiest days and best treats ever, so simple.

Elizabeth D. October 15th, 2016

Our flock loves mealworms. My son trult believes hand feeding the worms makes the whole flock friendlier.

cynthia October 15th, 2016

I feel for whoever has to read every one of these comments! Beans and rice, mellons, grapes, tomatoes, and any bread. Pick me!

Lisa R October 15th, 2016

Sadly I cannot sa I have a “flock spoiler” as of yet.
I am a newbie to chickens. We are in the process of preparing our family for a couple of hens. 🙂 Our coop is built and we are gathering up our ” Chicken needs” at the moment for our new arrivals.
It is really nice to see all the post for Chicken spoilers, it giving us some great ideas!
Thank you!

Wendy Ristine October 15th, 2016

I like to spoil my little flock by giving them frozen blueberries and sweet corn. I also catch grasshoppers for them. It’s fun to watch them chase and catch the grasshoppers!

Michelle Parkman October 16th, 2016

I spoil my baby girls by giving them mealworms every time I go and get the eggs which I think helps them and then tell them they are good babies and that I love them. Sometimes they will jump up and set on my are and carry on conversations with me. I just love it.

Karen I October 18th, 2016

Left over pizza, hotdogs and watermelon. Our girls come running.

Mickey Repan October 18th, 2016

My sweet girls are spoiled for sure by giving them lots of love and a combination of oats, meal worms and raisins. The cute little sounds they make when eating, says it all. They are a joy for me to care for.

Rheanna October 21st, 2016

Meal worms and cuddles. Garlic and nettle water too.

Darlene Bushey November 4th, 2016

My babies are so spoiled, that daddy will bring them in and take turns sitting on his lap watching tv. They love any type of treats so always kept on hand. This is not a hobby because they are actually part of the family. ❤️ I’ve been sick for many years with automimune disease and thyroid cancer so this gives me joy, taking care of my girls that I can still do physically. A type of therapy lol.
