    What do you give for treats?

    How do you give it ? (cooked, raw, dried)

    I have been reading around on the boards about this for treats or that for treats, but no one ever says HOW they are giving it being cooked, or dried, or raw...?

    Thanks!!!

    I would love to spoil my chickens! LOL

    Raw or cooked veggies (no onion or raw potatoes), cooked rice, fruits (no citrus or avacado), cooked plain pasta, cooked lean meats such as chicken and ground beef, wheat bread etc. They also like grass in moderation, mealworms, worms in moderation, and scrambled eggs.
    Stay away from fatty, salty or sugary foods (such as processed things like potato chips).

    Edited to add: I think all groups are different, but mine go nuts for plain pancakes, cooked rice, cooked pasta, grapes (cut in half because I have some not-so-bright ones that try to eat grapes whole) and tomatoes.

    Mine love pasta and rice - cooked. They go NUTS for it.
    I always give em left overs of those, in fact I cook extra!

    They also get my salad left overs, no dressings! [​IMG]
