Somehow my chickens don't seem normal....they forage around the yard and eat weeds and scratch up things all over the yard yet when I put cut up apples, watermelons, potato rinds or raisins in their feed dish, they ignore them. Isn't this weird? It's like they prefer their pellets! When their store bought chicken feed is gone they will peck at the scraps but don't seem very thrilled by them. I started mixing the two feeds together. I thought they were going to help me with my biomass reduction and my compost jar!!! Any suggestions or should I just leave them alone??
