Give your flock this simple to make chicken treat ornament for the holidays.


Optional ingredients:  kelp, wheat, lentils, and sesame seeds.
Directions: Lay a greased cookie cutter on top of a double layer of foil.  Bring the foil up tightly around the cookie cutter. Cut a piece of twine (I used twine from my hay bales) then lay the twine into the cookie cutter.
