I work part-time in a grocery store and am able to raid the bins where our produce guy throws away the stuff that won't sell. My chickens seem to really like cantaloupe and yellow squash, zucchini and watermelon but apples are only so-so. I've never tried oranges and the other citrus fruits and never broccoli. It seems I've read that broccoli is not good to give them, is that right? They have a feeder inside the coop with a pellet/scratch mix, plus we throw out handfulls of this mix a couple times a day. They "free-range" in their pen, which is fairly large for four small bantams. Sometimes I make spaghetti for them and give it first thing in the morning, occasionally rice, though it's been awhile. Does all this sound ok? Is there anything more I could try? I think the pellets are too large for them so sometimes I break it into smaller pieces. I've never seen what the crumbles look like but I may buy that instead, next time. Is it ok to mix crumble and scratch?
