My birds go NUTS over dried meal worms. Simply love that treat more than anything else. I also find they really dig strawberry tops (with some of the berry still on it) diced grapes and Lettuce. I avoid to many table scraps taht arent good for humans (potato chips, mac and cheese etc..) that some of my friends give their birds. I also give a few live worms sometimes after I turn over portions of my garden.

Luck of the Irish to ya'

Hello and :welcome

There is a wide variety of treats you can feed your chickens: yoghurt is a popular one, and almost any kitchen scraps they will love. Cooked egg and chicken are very popular among my birds. :lau

Good luck with your chickens! As long as they've got enough food and water and a predator-proof coop you should be good to go.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
