    This thread is for helping give chicken owners ideas for what to feed their chickens:3.
    My girls' enjoy:
    1. Freeze-dried meal worms
    2. Mashed up seed crackers
    3. Oats
    4. Corn
    5. Spinach

    Mine are small yet - only 4 weeks. It's funny because they haven't been down with anything green I give the besides grass (I haven't tried spinach though, I'll put that on my list.

    Mine like:
    1. dried mealworms (my master worm hunter will not eat these)
    2. real worms - these they scratch for by themselves :)
    3. bugs that eat my garden - again :) they get these by themselves
    4. Hard boiled egg
    5. Strawberry
  3. So far they have only had sliced apple that my 18 month old threw on the floor (loved it!) and today I gave them some slices of really huge overgrown zucchini from the garden. My niece gave them ruffles potato chips when I wasn't looking, at a party last weekend, but I don't think they should have chips again.
