    I pulled back a log, and there were probably 20 somthin' worms under there!

    I called the chickens, and offered one to my newest roo... He looked at it. Clucked.

    and left. [​IMG] What tha? How in the WORLD does this bird NOT like worms? Ohwell.

    His favorite is bread and banana. But you can FORGET the worms.

    We had a box left over from fishing and my 4 girls wouldn't touch them either. They'll tear up some mealworms though!

    When my chickens were just chicks, I only had 1 that would eat worms. I've now noticed that my pullets who have started laying are all really fond of worms. Their interrest in worms was very sudden with the production of eggs so I'm guessing they just want the extra protein. I have one holdout (Dark Brahma) who isn't laying yet and she doesn't gorge on worms, unlike the others.

    I spent considerable time last weekend in the garden with the girls. I got so much pleasure out of turning over the soil with 5 pullets jostling for the prime position to pluck out any hapless worm - of which there are tons in my compost rich soil.
