    I'm new to chickens as well, though I took over the previous owner of my new home's small flock of 6 hens (already adult hens). We had a big celebration last night and my girls had a feast as well. They loved it- it was a little fruit salad with blueberries, strawberries, honey dew, canteloup, and greens from the edible derangement, and sprinkled with mealworms [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Here's the special chicken treat fruit salad I just made for them :).
