Chickens are like garbage disposals. I think they eat pretty much everything. Just make sure that what you give them is not rotten or spoiled. Here's a link that I look on a lot to see what chickens like or don't like www.backyardchickens.com/a/chicken-treat-chart-the-best-treats-for-backyard-chickens

I have 4 salmon faverolles who are the most stubborn picky treat eater I have ever heard of. They won't eat lettuce broccoli corn or watermelon! They will only eat blueberries grapes cherries (withoutpits) meal worms tuna and cheese.
My buff orpingtons will eat anything.

Many people have mentioned watermelon as a favourite for chickens. Mine liked rockmelon, and they like pumpkin and sweet potato (cooked).
