    Just the tops? I think my girls would chase me back into the house! They want whole strawberries. Lucky for me that we have a patch of wild ones growing behind the house.

    My gals just love the whole thing. I cut them in pieces and they run around eating as fast as they can. They also LOVE bananas.

    Some of mine will eat the tops, some will let them lay. They love the banana peels too.
