I love it when The Queen Mother of Chickenlandia (my mom) comes for a visit. For the two weeks she’s here, my family and I get to eat the best food.
The kids have a favorite and I don’t blame them: homemade tortillas. We made some together a few days ago and I got to thinking, why not share some of the fun with the chickens? That’s when I got the idea for some homemade chicken treats, the Chickenlandia Way!
My mom is originally from Guatemala, where homemade tortillas are a staple. They seem complicated, but they are actually very easy to make. All you need is masa (you can find this at most grocery stores in the Hispanic section), water, and a hot cast iron pan.
Of course they are totally fantastic with another Guatemalan staple, guacamole! The kids gobbled it up like there was no tomorrow. Afterwards, they decided to go out to play while my mom and I created my new masterpiece, homemade chicken treats using homemade tortillas! The chickens loved them, even though they were a tad skeptical at first.
The treats can be made for wild birds as well, using wild bird seed or the Henny and Roo Forage Seeds that I used. For chickens, they can be tied up or just placed on the ground so they can go at it!
