    Hi - we have 8 chickens in an urban setting. The chickens have a nice little run but no access to a garden in which to forage. They love treats of cheese crusts, yoghurt, any kind of meat or fish. On the other hand, the don't seem interested in green trimmings (e.g., leaves from the vegetable garden). Is that normal? What can I provide them to increase their veggie intake? (They have access to their normal feed.)

    You feed them well and give them treats. Chickens will eat greens and some even love them but it's seems mine anyway don't eat so much greens. Probably because mine are well fed and get plenty of treats as well. I don't worry so much about greens though. They have plenty to forage on if they want greens.
