    After subjecting my pullets to a variety of feedstuffs and kitchen refuse, I finally found something they don't like:
    bananas and limes...[​IMG]

    Hi there Andy, some of my hens will eat bananas and oranges. I thought it was interesting when my chickens were fighting over some left over pinto beans.LOL!

    Our birds are just about 1 year old. They just started eating bananas, but they won't eat them unless they are really ripe, like what you'd use to make banana bread. Our whole flock shares 1 banana.

    I mashed up a banana for my pullets & they liked it. I gave them some apple & pear peels yesterday and they scarfed those. I thought about giving them limes, but I refrained. Sounds like that was a good idea.
