    Too spoiled. I can safely say that they eat better than most, if not all 3rd world countries and I think I made a mistake when I started giving them table scraps. They absolutely love pasta. The problem is that now they refuse to eat grains and feed unless I mix it with something and it isn't obvious. The special feed I bought them contains many vitamins and prevents coccidiosis. They just won't touch it. I bought big, small and powder versions and all had the same result.

    Do you know how to deal with this kind of fancy high class chickens?

    They won't starve themselves. Don't feed them all the other stuff. Feed them what you want them to eat and eventually they will eat it.

    That's what I'm doing with my birds [​IMG] I just switched them to fermented feed and they don't like it but that's all they are getting. They better learn to like it quick [​IMG]

    This. Just like kids wanting to eat junk. Just don't give it. They'll fuss, but I promise they won't starve.
