Chicken Feed Mash

My chickens eat the pellets and scratch mix but they don't really eat a lot of it and they end up with empty crops. So we make a mash, they love it, we give it to them for breakfast and dinner. Here's the recipe although you can mix it up a bit and put different seeds and stuff in it, your choice.

Ingredients:
-chicken pellets
-scratch mix
-a little bit of garlic powder
-creamed corn
-rice
-tin diced tomatoes
-boiled water straight from the kettle

Method:
-Gather the pellets and scratch mix and pour them into a large metal bowl (size depends on how much stuff you put in.
-Add half a tin of creamed corn and 1 full tin of diced tomatoes.
-Place some cooked rice
-Pour in some garlic powder or crushed up garlic.
-Mix it all up to help blend the ingredients.
-Fill with hot water until water is just covering all of the food mix.
-Mix until all the seed pellets have melted into mash
-Leave to cool

Then place some spoonfuls into bowls and feed to them they will go crazy for it

NOTE: When it has turned into mash you will notice the amount in the bowl has expanded so always use a size bigger of a bowl for safety measures.
