    Does anyone grow any kind of food or treats for their chickens? If so, what kind?

    I have grow boxes and I was hoping that growing the girls some treats would keep them away from the crops during foraging time. I would appreciate any advice on this or information. Thank you, David.

    Oh, they like all kinds of things! Just about any cold weather vegetable will be a treat for chickens. In general, stay away from herbs for chickens, though; too much of some herbs can make them sick. Mine love my peas!
