    I've read alot about BOSS on here for treats, saying that chickens love it. Well I went to TSC and bought "Black Oil Sunflower Seeds" this is BOSS right or wrong? My girls could really care less, They look at me like ok lady wheres are treat, we really don't want these:confused:

    Are mine the only chickens that don't like this or did I buy the wrong thing?

    Quote:whew! I thought I got the wrong thing. I was so excited and thought they would love me for it but NOPE!! So I had a bag a fresh cranberries in the fridge, they certainly did love those. WoW, I guess they still love me!

    Try them again another day. My older girls love them, but it took the younger ones a couple of days to realize they were good to eat. Once one or two get the idea ~ they will all go after them. Chickens are funny that way.

    My birds will eat them, but they are not thier first choice. Your birds are normal as mine as they turned up their nose too. My rabbits however can't get enough of them.
