Have you ever noticed how expensive chicken pecking blocks are? Since I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on treats for the chickens, I decided to come up with my own Chicken Pecking Block Recipe. I’m actually super excited about controlling the ingredients, and even being able to give them nutrients that I know they need!

There are plenty of Chicken Pecking Block Recipes out there, that utilize various amounts of ingredients. You can play around with my recipe and make it something you know your girls (and guys) will love!

The first time I introduced my homemade pecking block, the chickens, of course, acted like it was an alien. Much like they did, when I first introduced pumpkins to them!

After picking off a few pieces for them, they realized it was a treat! They went to town and boy were they happy little chickens!

Chicken Pecking Block Recipe

I’ve made this recipe so that you can make small little blocks to keep and give when you want, or you can make one big one if you like!

There’s also a tutorial on how to make them below the regular recipe.

Ingredients:

Directions:

To make muffin sized chicken pecking blocks.

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl or pan.
  3. Then, mix well.
  4. Fill up a muffin tray with the mixture.
  5. Using a straw, cut a hole in every block, so you can hang them.
  6. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until stiff on top.
  7. Allow to cool.
  8. Use a knife to go around the edge and pop them out of the pan.
  9. Wrap in freezer paper, and place in a plastic freezer zip bag.
  10. Place it in the freezer.

To make one big round pecking block

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or pan.
  3. Then, mix well.
  4. Fill up an 8×8 or 9×9 pan.
  5. Create a hole, big enough for a string to go through. To hang it up later.
  6. Back for about 30 minutes, or until stiff on top.
  7. Allow to cool, and give to birds when ready.
  8. If you don’t plan to give it to the birds right away, you can freeze it or refrigerate it.

You can serve them frozen when it’s hot out. The chickens won’t mind something to help cool them down…
