    Are chicken being fed grains (chemicals) that have flavor enhancers in them?

    Considering chickens eat their own poo, I wouldn't think real food would need flavor enhancers...lol

    Yeah, I was napping this weekend next to my coop when I think I overheard some of the chickens actually talking.

    RIR: "Hmmm, I think this scratch he gave us is bad! tastes like dirt!"

    BO: "Well, it was ground this morning..." [​IMG]
