    Anyone grow daikon radish for their chickens?

    I heard daikon radish grows well where I live so I ordered some seeds. The plants did well but I planted them too late and they ended up starting to bolt. I didn’t like the bitterness so I gave some to my chickens, greens and all. It seems like it is their favorite treat just under mealworms...

    How many treats a day?

    Today I have my chickens a whole cucumber and then it started getting hotter so I gave them 1/4 of a watermelon. I felt bad for them since it’s 90+ degrees outside at the moment. Is this two many treats for one day?

    I've seen a lot of tiktoks of people taking their pets to Starbucks for a "pup cup" (it's just a small cup of squirty cream) and I was wondering if that was safe for ducks and chickens? It looks like a fun treat for the flock, but obviously I don't want to make them sick!
