Kale and Cabbage on list of toxic plants? - Page 3

post #21 of 23

I do this with my chickens; it can be very useful to have them come when called! I start when they're small, giving some kind of treat while calling "Chick, chick, chick" and before long they learn that means something good. I also use specific containers for specific treats, such as a coffee can for sunflower chips, and a Glad disposable container for the mealworms... they get VERY excited when they see that one!!

Five dogs, two cats, four budgies, one parrot, 12 chickens of various ages, and a great DH who built me the coop of my dreams:)

I pierce it and run a cord through it and hang it so they can have fun with it as they eat it.
I have given mine cabbage and then they end up with diarrhea...

My chickens eat layer food and I give them egg shells and cabbage scrap with carrots and bread. I have noticed that when cabbage is given they have diarrhea... Why is this? They also aren't laying eggs daily... Why. They are a year old...
