Home Garden Grown Vegetables

Which types of vegetables do you find your chickens enjoy best? Growing a large garden this year to sell produce on the side and I would like to plant extra for the chickens. Just make a quick list if you don't mind. Thanks!!
OK I sell veggies. I use no chemicals. Chickens like watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, squash, mustard greens, collards, kale, carrot tops & carrots mainly cut up, spinach, & all the weeds you pick out of the garden. I usually cut the melons & cucumbers in half & freeze it before serving on hot days. My chickens love to chase & eat grasshoppers that's by far their favorite. They like broccoli but so do I & I usually only give them the ones that bolt. They will eat the leaves off almost all plants.
I don't feed them tomatoe leaves, potatoe leaves or potatoes uncooked are green. They like beans & peas but I only serve them cooked. Maybe, someone can add more.
Everything listed above, plus I would add radishes and turnips...super easy to grow and my chickens love the green tops. Nasturtiums, leaf lettuce (grows really fast), dandelions (my chicken's favorite for sure).
Thanks for asking this, I was just thinking about it this morning!

I plan on doing an extensive garden this year with things that we will eat and I will can, but am planning on "extras" for family/friends and the chickens.
