    Is there a thread somewhere that lists the human foods that chicks/chickens can eat? I want a good training food. I know they can have black oil sunflower seeds, but with the shell, or not?

    Hey, I do not know of a threa, but I trained my hens quite well with a variety of things. From my experience, they love sweet things. Like hydrated corn, blueberries(a special fave), and green beans. but just about anything will make em happy just keep it all organic as possible. :)

    My chickens will eat just about anything they can fit in their mouth or shred :) They really like macaroni and cheese. Chunks of scrambled eggs are a hit too.
