    Darn things got too spoiled with treats and now they turn their beaks up at veggies.

    DBF and I are putting them on a strict diet: no bread, cheese, meat, or fruit until they start eating veggies again. Sheesh... it's like having kids who won't eat peas!

    Goofy birds! Mine go for the bread first too! Then they eat the greens beans last!

    You're a smart woman Jenn. Whenever I notice a decrease in the amount of feed my chickens are consuming, I cut back on their treats.

    Mine hate celery, and carrots. Cooked or not. But they love canned corn and peas.
