    Most veggies, hardboiled eggs, some cooked meat ... really they're sort of little dinosaurs with feathers!

    Just about anything you have in the house would be fine for your chickens... how old are they?

    Oatmeal mixed with yogart, wheat berries, a cucumber or melon, sliced open. Mine even like raw eggplant sliced in half. Applesauce.

    And a trip to the feed store first thing in the morning!

    An old timer told me that a chicken would eat any thing a buzzard would eat. Then it would eat the buzzard;)

    We always feed our chickens the scraps that are left over from meals and also the scraps from the prep of those meals. We have in the kitchen what we call the chicken bowl for all the scraps of the day to go in and then we take that out to the chickens to pick over.

    After seeing many of the coops on this sight and now reading some of these menu choices, I am quickly realizing that a lot of your chickens are living better than I do![​IMG]

    Quote:Your right!! The coops people make for their chickens blow my mind. Heck, I live in a barn where chickens are suppose to live & all the coops I see are houses go figure.
