    I've spoiled my flock, theres no doubt about that...they get lots of treats and fresh fruit, however they WILL NOT eat bugs anymore! [​IMG] As babies, they loved crickets,worms and any bugs they could get. Lately though, I've dug up worms, held them up and the chickens literally turn their beaks up and heads away! [​IMG]

    maybe when it is warmer and they can dig for their own?
    That is something I am not gonna do. Sprouts, frozen watermelon, but I am not diggin for bugs.

    good luck though
