    Thanks....but I don't think they can eat everything we eat. On the list of does and donts it say no avocado....pineapple wasn't on the list though.

    At the bottom of the treats chart page (below the pics) there are several links to toxic foods and plants. The first link is fairly comprehensive. Just because we can eat a food doesn't mean the chickens can; onions are on the toxic plants list, for example. I don't see pineapple on there but don't know if it is safe.

    Someone told me no citrus. I wanted to feed them some oranges. So I am curious what answers you get too.
