    I have introduced to the group of (3) 2 months old, Yogurt, berries, pop-corn (funny) apple sauce, peaches, nectarines, and some other stuff like oatmeal with applesauce in it. What else have you given your kids? I know there is a treat list but this is mine so far..... Whats yours?

    From the garden: Corn, cucumbers, green beans, and PEAS. They LOVE fresh peas ! Strawberries are another one they go crazy for, and milk.

    Ours love any kind of melon especially the seeds, corn, definitely bread, boiled potatoes, sunflower seeds, dried mealworms, swiss chard and a few other things. Our chickens aren't picky! [​IMG]

    Tomatoes, Lettuce, Strawberries, worms, carrots, peas, watermelon and cantelope rinds, rolled barley (they scratch up what the goats don't eat!) Sunflower seeds, rice.... and the list goes on forever! They would probably eat my house if they got the chance!
