    Can you put them in a food processor or grate them?

    And, my hens like them microwaved . . . no need to peel and they'll eat the tops, too.

    In fact, they'll eat just the tops and peels [​IMG]. But, they really like 'em cooked.

    Mine like them cooked, but raw carrots were definitely not a hit with them!

    I have given our birds many many kinds of veggies.
    Carrots they seem to like. May not go crazy over them right away, but they will eat them. I have given them straight out of the garden(tops, dirt and all).And I have also given them cooked ones from the house. I really haven't noticed a difference on which they prefer better as they eventually eat them all...
