I asked the local produce stand for any old produce they wanted to throw away. The second I said, "I have chickens" they led me out back to a stack of boxes and said "take what you want"! WOOHOO! I got a whole (cut-up) watermelon and about 15 tomatoes. My girls eat better than I do, I swear. I brought out the watermelon with much fanfare and gave it to them. They didn't know what to do with it, so I dug my hand into it and gave them little pieces by hand. Even my timid cochin and skittish RIR were leaning against me for more hand-fed nibbles. I finally broke up a whole bunch of little pieces and put them in the shell to show them where those tasty morsels were coming from. But would they eat them? NOOOOOOoooo. They wanted to be HAND FED. The second I held out a chunk, it was nibbled to death. But if the chunk was on the ground or in the watermelon half, they wanted nothing to do with it. DBF sat by and commented, "You've created monsters, I keep telling you!"
