    mine don't like the stems, but they eat all of the green tops.
     
  5. They have started to not eat it for some reason :( ... They go into a "scratching frenzy" an then peck at it a little...
     
  6. Never mind! This is a pic of my chick peep running away from the others with broccoli in her mouth [​IMG]
