As most of you know, I’m a new chicken mommy. We got 5 baby chicks for our girls (OK, they were for me!) on Easter.
These are them as babies:
They stayed in a small rabbit cage until they were about 3-4 months old and it was getting a little crowded in there:
Now, they live in their deluxe coop outside full time.
In Florida. In summer.
The past few weeks have been brutal here (with real feel temperatures in the 100s- NOT KIDDING)
So, I decided to whip up some treats for them to keep them cool.
I took some corn and shucked it off the cob.
I put it in the bottom of a silicone tray (I think it’s supposed to be used for brownies lol) and topped it with water.
Then, I freezed them and got frozen corn treats for our girls! (Yes, they’re all girls now!)
*side note: we recently “traded” out our rooster for another hen. Meet Dory:
They ate them right up!
Bonus: Our newest girl decided to lay eggs the day after I gave her these treats! Coincidence? I think not!
I never thought I’d grow up to be that crazy chicken lady, but here I am, killin’ it:
