We have two separate flocks of chickens - 22 hens and a rooster two years old, and a new flock we keep separate from the older ones, 24 pullets one suspected rooster 10 weeks old. The older flock will not eat COOKED CARROTS no matter how I try to disguise them - whether I put them in stew, mixed veggies, casseroles, etc. The bowl will be picked clean, except a pile of cooked carrots on the bottom. Seems the new flock has the same dislike of cooked carrots. Anyone else have chickens that won't eat something like that? They'll eat raw carrots. I shred them in the food processor and put them in with cabbage and other greens and they eat them, but not cooked.
