    Was looking at comments on treats to feed chickens and tried bananas and they are loving it. Does it hurt to feed them the peel? Tried yogurt but they were not as excited about it.

    Mine won't touch bananas. They will devour a watermelon though. I try just about anything. I hate waste. IF the dogs won't eat it the chickens usualy will. They see me coming with a white bucket they know it's treat time and actually try to climb in the bucket.

    I have a young pair of AO and I think they would eat anything. I put a blackberry and blueberry in their pen and they went nuts over it. I swear they will eat anything and are always looking for more to eat. Little Billy Goats.

    Reminds me I have some strawberry's I need to process. They will love that. Treat Time!
