    I'm sure there are but I don't give mine any because cleaning the brooders is a dirty enough job as it is.

    I've given mine watermelon and they cleaned it down to the rind. Also sliced tomatoes.I'm sure there are a bunch. My brooder is in my garage and sometimes at night I open the garage door ,turn off all lights except the heat lamp in the brooder and tons of bugs fly in to the brooder and the baby turkeys go nuts catching the bugs. What can I say,I'm easily amused

    Kinda like "Channel 9" for for the easily amused ? - It's great fun plus as you swat the bugs that land on you, you can hand feed thd the birds too. from another easily amused country boy
