Ok...I am a new chicken owner. I bought 10 baby chicks on March 18 and have been devouring this site, gleaning chicken-owner knowledge and applying it to my small flock. I had to buy a bag of chicken feed at the local farm store and saw the black oil sunflower seeds in a nice bag. I had read that chickens love these, and it's such a great treat and a nice tool for training. I paid the $10 dollars for the bag and couldn't wait to get home and treat my girls. I tossed some out and you'd have thought I was trying to drop poison bombs on them. They didn't touch them and now I have sunflower sprouts. Actually, they're now about 2 feet tall. Do I have weird chickens, or will they come around and start eating these? I've wasted $10 in worse ways, I suppose, but I was disappointed that they didn't like them.
