What treats do your chickens like?

My girls love just about anything........... meal worms, greens, watermelon, raisins, grapes, popcorn, bread, pasta, water hyacinth, rice.  Just about anything, they're not picky!    :D  Welcome to BYC!   So glad you joined us!

I've limited my flock to millet in terms of treats - every morning at 11 am if I go to the coop they mob me cos they know what's coming!

Mine are like b.hormada's, not picky. I give mine scrapes from my garden and the pepper tree that grows over the coop drops leaves for them. During the summer I give them frozen water melon to cool them down and keep them hydrated. Strawberries are a flock favorite, but a have a chicken obbsesed with kale. Meal worms gives my rhode island red the runs, so I cut them off of that. But they love this:

 

They are soft so I pinch them which turns them into powder and I scatter it around the coop for them to scratch for.

My farm:3 dogs (catahula, scotie, and soft coated wheaten),2 mini potbelly pigs pigs(boy and girl),1 goat,1 giant sulcata tortoise,9 hens(of different breeds),2 roosters (father and son), and soon guinea fowl and spring chicks!

Can chickens have citrus fruits?

As far as I know yes, but everything in moderation. Don't give them too much

I just did some reading and found that they probably will not eat it anyways but weither or not they can is debatible.
