...WHY do mine consistently like fruits better than vegetables??? I've read that chickens cannot taste sweetness. I'm not disputing the science, but curious about others' experience. When I give my chickens their daily "salad" of mixed veggies & fruits, they always pick out the fruits first. Does not seem to be a color thing as some articles have suggested -- they've had both vegetables and fruits in a veritable rainbow of colors, and still consistently eat fruit first. For that matter, when I bring out random one-off fruit or vegetable scraps while cooking, they sprint to get at fruit, and are more "Okay, sure. Whatever..." about the vegetable scraps. What is your experience?
