    Hello, I have had chickens for around 3 years. I have heard before that chickens like to eat tuna, but if you feed them too much, then their eggs begin to taste like tuna. So if chickens eat worms, then does that mean that their eggs taste like worms already?

    Just wondering. lol. :)

    By the way, today I was gardening with my chickens. (They were walking around and eating worms that I dug up.) and a field
    mouse scurried by. It was a fairly large one. My chickens actually chased it, and tried to eat it. I've seen my chickens eating mice before, but never any that big.

    Yes, yes they will taste like worms, but the up side is that worms taste good. [​IMG] Welcome to BYC. Now if they eat mice - [​IMG].

    I dunno? [​IMG] I never ate a worm. We should ask some birds.

    Good question...I don't know if the taste would transfer. If so, the eggs I collect in the summer would taste a lot like grasshoppers, June bugs, and cicadas because my gals feast on them!
