    My girls and one roo LOVE grass. I actually have my husband keep one small section in the back corner of our yard uncut so I can pull them grass every day. The days that my husband actually cuts grass is a buffet for them. I give them a pile of it. What they do not eat becomes part of the floor to scratch at. There is a section on the main page of this website under the learning center that gives you a list of what they can and can not eat. Mine also love watermelon, any greens such as cabbage, grapes, carrotts, and a host of things. You will be suprised at what they will and can eat! Good luck![​IMG]
