How do I get my chickens to eat and try new things. I didn't realize that they could eat some many things so I have been trying new things everyday. I already gave the 2 5 month olds sunflower seeds with their crumbles and the others just crumbles (sometimes bread) they are 5 weeks. Here is a list of what I tried and they won't eat any of it!!! Are they just fussy or am I doing it to early or wrong? Raspberries, strawberries, oranges, bananas, lettuce. They really like to bread and pancakes I gave them the other day but thats it. I want to give them yogurt and maybe oatmeal this winter but I fear it will be just a waste of time.
