    I give my hens a chopped up boiled egg, or some greek yogurt (has more protein, calcium and less sugar than reg yogurt) on some wheat bread. Left over whole grain spagetti is a hit also.

    One of these every other day or so, plus I'm going to get black oil sunflower seed

    Our birds love scrambled eggs. We only began giving them scrambled eggs a couple of weeks ago, and I think it has made a difference. We let them cool, of course.[​IMG]
