    I've limited my flock to millet in terms of treats - every morning at 11 am if I go to the coop they mob me cos they know what's coming!

    Mine are like b.hormada's, not picky. I give mine scrapes from my garden and the pepper tree that grows over the coop drops leaves for them. During the summer I give them frozen water melon to cool them down and keep them hydrated. Strawberries are a flock favorite, but a have a chicken obbsesed with kale. Meal worms gives my rhode island red the runs, so I cut them off of that. But they love this:

    They are soft so I pinch them which turns them into powder and I scatter it around the coop for them to scratch for.

    As far as I know yes, but everything in moderation. Don't give them too much

    I just did some reading and found that they probably will not eat it anyways but weither or not they can is debatible.
