    I've read on here about how chickens just LOVE mealworms and BOSS.....not mine!! I'm trying to get them to eat more protein because of a feather picking issue, but of course they won't eat it. I put it with their food, in my hand, in the luck. So frustrating! They are about 17 weeks old. They sure love leaves though! Silly chickens. [​IMG]

    you can get them to eat more protein by upping the content of protein in their feed. Mine wouldn't eat bugs if I fed them to them either. maybe try a game cock feed - they tend to be higher. I know some people say cat food but just as many will say don't feed cat food. [​IMG]
