Chicken Treats!!!!!!!

If it's one thing my gals love, it's some chicken treats. Now, I know that there are all these fancy pants treats out there that I could buy, but let's be honest: I'm cheap. I don't want to pay for something nature can make, and there are a whole host of things that chickens just love that are all natural and much cheaper than a bagged and processed treat.

With the heat recently, I have been making these ice block treats with some of their favorite fruits and veggies, and boy are they are a hit! Their purpose is two-fold. The first is that it gets the chickens to peck at the ice and cools them down. The other is help them have a good old time pecking away at stuff they love!

To make these treats all you need are some fruits and veggies and some water. And a freezer, of course! And while I'm on it, you might want to have some chickens, too!

They are inspecting them and pecking at them. 
Get it ladies! 

This is a banana one that I made. I also used zucchini, squash, cucumbers, blueberries, and mulberries in some as well. The more densely you pack the food in with the ice, the  better. That is one thing I learned. The more "goodies" in the ice, the more apt they are to peck at them and cool down. 

So tell me, how do you keep cool in the summertime heat?!?!
