    Quick Question!

    these are my 1st chickens so I'm playing it safe, I gave them some really super ripe tomatoes and some xxl cucumbers they love the seeds but I am tossing the plant material into the compost heap. I did spead some sugar free peanut butter on a chuck of watermelon and they went crazy over it.
