    I run around the yard with a net catching grasshoppers! [​IMG]

    I've heard they like fruit - watermellons and grapes for the most part....

    My chickens go nuts for grapes!!! I cut them in half or they will swallow whole. They also love tomatoes, strawberries and peaches.

    My chickens love apples and carrots too. I usually dice the apples and shred the carrots. Just about any type of fruit seems to be a hit. They really love yogurt too.[​IMG]

    I have been making them apple cinnimon (sp) oatmeal on the chilly mornings and they love that. I dilute it alot to cool it down and they love the juice from it too. WIN~WIN
