    OK, so we're not supposed to give chickens garlic & onions unless we want strongly flavored eggs, right?

    Last night I dropped an M&M. The chicks ran all over with it but eventually abandoned it. Think I could feed them chocolate to get those Cadbury egg things?

    How funny! Try it, and if it works report back here. I'd love to have some myself--and just think how they'd sell!

    I don't think chocolate is good for chickens.

    I think the foil wrap will be the problem.
