GIVEAWAY: Manna Pro® Harvest Delight™ (Winner Announced!)

WINNER UPDATE!

Random.org says… Comment #20 is our winner! Thanks everyone for being a part of this! Look for more goodies to come soon!

 


 

Recognizing the importance of chickens as pets and companions as well as providers, Manna Pro has created Harvest Delight™ Poultry Treat as a great way to delight your flock! Here on the Urban Homestead mini-barnyard we treat our chickens with kitchen scraps (spaghetti!), bits of fruit and dug up grubs, bugs and worms. But sometimes, in the dead of winter, it’s hard to find those worms or it’s too rainy to pick a bouquet of greens for the “ladies.”  This treat contains whole grains, peanuts, dried carrots and tomatoes, raisins, flaxseed, sunflower seeds and more!

Our chickens have given this treat “two wings up!” — in fact, they fuss and fight with each other this treat so we have to make sure enough goes around!

    My chooks LOVE my horses’ grain!! When I go out to feed, they all follow me out to the barn, and wait patiently by the bin for me to scoop it out. I always “spill” some, just for them, because if I don’t, they’ll dive right into the horses’ buckets!!

  2. Summer says:

    Our chickens love treats….berries like blueberries, tomato, worms from compost area and they beg the kids for whatever they are snacking on in the yard :). thanks

  3. Heather says:

    We are planning on getting our FIRST chickens this weekend. We are so excited. But, because we haven’t had chickens before, I couldn’t tell you the best treat for them. The hens that we see out at our CSA farm all really enjoy the leftover veggies from the garden. 🙂

  4. Courtney says:

    Definitely watermelon! Great frozen on those hot summer days! 🙂

  5. Martha Waugh says:

    My little flock loves melons. It doesn’t matter if it’s cantaloupe or honeydew or watermelon. They love them all. I’m still trying to figure out if they like the meat or the rinds better. My girls are piggies.

      I shared this giveaway on my FB wall too. Not sure how to get link for that posting, but it’s on my wall.

  7. Cynthia says:

    My hens lovelovelove it when I harvest Japanese beetle grubs out of my compost pile for them. One girl will grab a grub and run around the yard with her beak full, clucking, while the others chase her trying to steal it. It sounds like she’s bawking with her mouth full!

  8. Lori says:

    Tomatoes and Crickets are favorites of my hens. Also chilled cucumber and watermelon on hot summer days.

  9. Barbra says:

    My little flock of chickens loves nearly everything I give them, eating is definitely their favorite passtime. But, when it comes to earthworms and grubs they all get a little crazy. It’s fun to watch them stand around and wait so patiently when they know I’m digging up treats just for them.

  10. Ellygra DiLalla says:

    My hens love organic scratch and grubs from the garden.

  11. Amanda says:

    I’ve ordered my chickens, but haven’t gotten them yet! They come in a few weeks and I’m beyond excited!! So, they’re favorite treat….. yet to be determined!

  12. Doreen says:

    Easy question! Our girls go absolutely nuts for the leftovers when we carve our Halloween pumpkins (not to mention the remains after the holiday is over!

  13. Cheryl Christian says:

    My two girls love grub worms and lettuce scraps. When I find a grub worm, I yell to Queenie and she comes over for her reward. I love my chickens.

  16. kj says:

    Our chickens love just about everything! On cold days though, they love warm oatmeal with flax seed…..right now they are enjoying grain and apples….we will also soak grain in raw milk and add powdered herbs, especially in the winter months – they gobble it up! Come spring when the lettuce and spinach are up they will be enjoying that as well – I always plant a row or two of mixed greens for the chickens and turkeys. However, I think their favorite time is at the end of harvest when they have free range in the garden…

  17. Donna Jackson says:

    Our chickens like Worms small snakes and any fresh fruit or vegie scraps.

  18. Stacia says:

    Millet and carrot tops, hands down! Although they are also a big fan of watermelon in the summer and pumpkins in the fall. A jack-o-lantern never goes to waste!

  19. Charyl Rocco says:

    Berries, melons & worms!

  20. Diane says:

    Dried mealworms! They run to me when I crinkle the bag, hilarious!

  21. Christie says:

    Our chickens are just wee babes – Beaker, Henietta, Yolko, and Ono turned 2 weeks old yesterday – but we recently introduced them to the beauty of WORMS. Ohmygoodness, I’ve never thought watching four tiny birds play keep away with a poor little worm could be so… cute.

  22. Liberty W says:

    The posts above are wonderful! Our current chicks are just a week out of the shell – I love to brood! Their favorite thing to do is snuggle into my shirt in the evenings. Our last big gals were thrilled with most anything that came from my kitchen – I can’t think of anything that we tried to feed that didn’t go over! 🙂

  23. Helen says:

    My peeps love pancakes! the grandkids just love it when they get to “share” breakfast with their favorite hen.

  24. Wendy says:

    I’m getting my first chicks ever on 4/20, so I don’t know what their favorite treat will be yet. Would love to try this though!

  25. Team Farm - The Whiteheads says:

    WORMS!!! When they where chicks they were so blissful after eathing them that they actually went into “food comas!” The first time it happened we were petrified that we’d poisoned them because they actually keeled over from a standing position.

  26. Terry says:

    Melons and pumpkin by far, although I have a few new black sex-link pullets that haven’t made their preferences known yet—they just eat everything.

  27. Marcy Miller says:

    The girls LOVE some meal worms and grapes. Can’t get enough!

  28. Jamie says:

    I don’t have chickens yet, but am preparing. We are hoping to have some later this spring and are very excited!!!

  29. Jamie says:

    I tweeted the giveaway:)

  31. Tina O'Neill says:

    Oyster Shells! They LOVE then n they are good for them too!

  32. Kim says:

    Our chickens favorite treats are watermelon rinds and dandelion leaves. 🙂

  33. Lynda says:

    Our chickens love fresh pulled weeds especially dandelions. They also go crazy for scratch tossed around. My husband has jokingly taken to calling it “chicken crack”, because of their excitement over getting the stuff and the fact when it’s gone they’ll keep following you around and waiting for more!! : )

  34. Sharon says:

    They love chopped apples. I’m going to try the watermelon this summer!

  35. Deb W says:

    Tomatoes! They nearly jump up and grab them out of my hands. They DO dance and stretch their necks up, like they are begging……..

  36. Judith Alton says:

    They like anything from the garden and scratch feed.

  42. Victoria says:

    My chickens love so many things it is hard to pick just one. They do love mealworms a lot and most any type of fruit. Of course fresh greens are always popular as well. Please enter me in the contest. Thank you!

  43. Kath M says:

    Kitchen scraps would be their favorite…fruit and veggie pieces tops etc.. Yum :~)
    Fresh cut grass clippings is right up there also.

  44. Linda Lauritzen says:

    I don’t personally have chickens, but I love listening to and holding my neighbors chickens. But I would love to give some of the tasty healthy stuff to my feathery neighbors! Wish I had a spot for some myself. It makes me giggle when I hear them laying eggs … I would make noise too 🙂

  45. Linda Lauritzen says:

    I’m tweating this!

  46. Linda Lauritzen says:

    And sharing on facebook!

  47. Karen says:

    If our chickens aren’t digging through the compost pile looking for worms, they are in the surrounding forest scratching through the leaves or up a tree somewhere catching bugs. When the blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries ripen in July and August, they call dibs on all the lower branches. Their favorite treat though is the love and attention we give them. They perch on our arms and nuzzle up to get scratched. Our animals are our children – they all get spoiled rotten.

  48. Dessa E says:

    Can’t tell you our chicks’ favorite treats yet because they won’t hatch for another week and a half or so! I’m pretty sure they’ll enjoy the Harvest Delight, though. 🙂

  49. Jamie says:

    My chickens love everything! If it is food, they will eat it!

  50. Elizabeth says:

    My chickens love grapes and mealworms.
