    my 2-year-old hens love the following treats:
    • yogurt with some oats or corn mixed in
    • berries of any kind
    • cracked corn
    • kale and other greens
    • MEALWORMS
    • apples
    • pumpkins
    • WORMS
    The best thing about these is that they're all super good for them! Sorry, this is random but people are asking about treats on here.

    Mine certainly go nuts for yogurt as well. They enjoy a hanging cabbage once in awhile to peck at too.

    I was cutting brussels sprouts in half for dinner, and I always end up with a pile of leaves when I do this (and lop off the stem end too). So I figured I would see if the 3 week old chicks would be interested since my quail LOVE cabbage...like more than anything else. I scattered some around the brooder. Once they discovered this was food, they had them eaten in no time flat!
