    Oh, I'll say that I've fed bananas, but they get VERY stinky poo from them. So, now when I feed bananas, I do it in the morning so it's out of their system by the time they go into the coop! (takes 4-6 hours for a chicken to digest food.)

    I don't know if i just imagined it, but i thought tomatoes would affect the taste of the eggs, I'd like to know if this is false because I'm throwing lots of garden tomatoes right back into the compost bin.
