Are my chickens spoiled? So, I have 8 hens. They were 4-6 months old when I got them about 10 weeks ago. They come when they are called (by me at least). They eat from my hand, sit in my lap and allow me to pet them. They love grapes and watermelon rind. I give them live crickets and mealworms. I raise my own mealworms. They also like baked potatoes. They usually pick the oyster shells that I add to their feed out and don't eat it. The scratch I have is wheat, barley, and corn mixed... they dont eat the corn. There is some kind of weed that grows around here that they really like, if I'm not going to be home to watch over them, I cut some of the weed and put it in their run for them. I only let them out of their run if I'm able to watch over them. Ok, I'm rambling. But are my chickens spoiled or is this normal? I've never had chickens before this... but I love my girls!
