I chopped the ends off of a watermelon and put it in the run with my chickens thinking they would love it...and they won't even taste it! I don't think they realize it is food

Once they realize what it is, they will love it..I hope. Mine do. They eat it right down to the rind. They also love it when I hull strawberries and give them the soft ones.

Mine LOVE chopped grapes -- when I want them to try something new I add it to the chopped grapes. Sometimes they like the new food (strawberries) and sometimes they don't (peas). It's fun watching them lose their little minds over their treats. Chop up some watermelon and mix it in the with oatmeal and see what they do.

I have the same issue with corn on the cob. Seems they don't have a clue it's food, but my grey does so it didn't go to waste

Maybe next time I'll have him eat one where the chics can see and maybe catch on. Otherwise more corn cob for him!

was the watermelon orange i find mine wont eat anything orange,used to offer them cooked carrots wont touch them, they love yellow melon and also fond of apples, and also tomatoes cut in half so they can get to the seeds but i think their all time favourite is baby gem lettuce hung from a piece of string in their run that would be demolished in minutes
