Is it possible for a chicken to be a picky eater?? I thought they were supposed to eat anything and everything, but my roo only seems to like a select few things! I don't think he is sick...he seems perfectly fine (no changes in behavior, and I have never noticed him eating a lot, so it does not seem like he has STOPPED eating...he just does not seem to be a big fan of eating...) I have been checking his crop, and it is not impacted. He does not like chicken feed (have tried mash, crumbles, and pellets to no avail)....but when he was younger he used to eat the medicated feed fine. He seems to like whole corn, cream cheese, cottage cheese, probiotic yogurt, wheat/grain bread (on occassion, not all the time), scrambled eggs (only sometimes),and oatmeal (only sometimes)...Oh and he loves soy turkey. He never eats a lot though, just a few bites and then he's done. I have tried everything people seem to say that their chickens like (popcorn, spinach, pasta, cabbage, peas...I could go on and on), but he just doesn't care for anything! He likes free-ranging and is good at finding bugs, etc...but its not possible for him to free range all the time! When he is not free ranging and I am not around, he literally does not eat I leave treats for him and he just doesn't touch them....I could leave him in the run for 2 days and come back and he won't appear to have touched anything! Any suggestions? Is it bad for a rooster to not eat chicken feed, or does it not matter as much for roos since they are not laying so the nutrition factor is not quite as important?
