Supplies needed:

  • Cookie sheet
  • Heart shaped cookie cutters

In a large bowl combine 4 cups of mixed dry seeds. Add the gelatin and water mixture to the dry seed mix along with the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and boiling water. Mix well, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated.

Press the seed mixture into your cookie cutters firmly. Once the cookie cutters are filled use a chopstick to create a hole through the treat where a string can be placed later in order for your treats to be hung.meyer hatchery blog treat in cutters

Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator or freezer for 24 hours. Once the treats have hardened remove them from the cookie cutters. Place a string or ribbon through the hole and hang your cute heart-shaped treats up for your flock to enjoy.meyer hatchery blog hanging treat outside with chickens
