Can chickens taste sweet?
no clue..but doubt it.
THey don't taste spicy hot neither.
I read recently that it's a controversial issue how much birds can taste; they're supposed to eat things that they think look like what they're supposed to be eating. However, different types of birds do have a varying number of taste buds; some have up to fifty (not very many) so they can taste some stuff. Haven't researched how many chickens have. I have my own views about what they can taste... I don't care how many taste buds they have...after watching how much our birds enjoy berries and watermelon...it's hard to believe they don't taste much!
If they don't taste sweet things then why do they go nuts over marsmallows?
because they are sticky and filled with air and it is fun to fight over DUH! lol jk
I swear my Roo can. I had some raspberry jam on a piece of toast and he LOVED it - I mean he was just nuts over it. He didn't go half that crazy for plain rapsberries or plain toast.......who knows?
My chickens definately go crazy over sweet treats more so than anything else they get.
Well, on the flip side...ours go crazy over styrofoam, too...we don't dare leave any lying around anywhere!
Are sweet things ok for the chickens to eat?
