    My chickens get almost anything we eat including fresh fruit salad, they are enjoying some right this minute.
    anyone else feed scraps from the table??

    heck yes, and I confess, I have actually BOUGHT produce for them, and raided the pantry!

    cottage cheese, any cheese. not much meat. maybe if its ground in spaghetti.

    I try to make sure their treats are not overly corn based (only because it is SO easy and cheap to get cracked corn). You should lean towards protein: dairy, nuts, yogurt.

    Today I scrambled and egg with a little milk and whole grain Oats (pantry) and microwaved it for my momma hen and 7 3 week olds.
    Talk about a party!

    I made the best "chicken pie" yesterday...sliced an old pear, layer of old cottage cheese, topped with old blueberries...oh, it was beautiful! Should enter in the fair. The girls loved it - gone in about 5 minutes.
