I am new to chickens, have been reading through all the posts here and having a good time learning. I had no idea chickens would eat just about anything! Anyway I have 3 blue orps and have been saving my trimmings from veggies and stuff for them, they dont eat it... are they just daft? or havent learned to like it yet lol. I got them to eat tomatos but they wouldnt touch broccoli or the corn on the cob. Cottage cheese made the little craZY hen look at me like I tried to poison her. do they eventually figure out this stuff is what all the rest of the chickens in the world eat? or are they just picky? They do have layer pellets and once a day scratch. a small handful of wet cob is a favorite too. and bread... the little craZY hen can jump chest high to get it before anyone else does. they love that. but not their veggies. sheesh you would think they were picky little kids!!
