    My chickens have eaten some weird foods lately.They have eaten my pickles and seed bags have been ripped and the plastic has been swallowed.But most weird that tops EVERYTHING, marshmellows.I dropped a mini marshmellow(they taste like sugar[​IMG]) and my chicken came up to me and ATE it. so i started to give some to all of my chickens. Its funny to watch them try and swallow the big ones! [​IMG]

    My weird chickens enjoy eating the leaves that fall off of my neighbors elm tree.... as long as they are mostly green. Yeah, I know, weird.

    Ours love cooked rice. So do the cats and the new puppy, with some meat added for them. The puppy also like sticky rice. As it happens, there's always some rice left over at the end of the day so they all get their fill.

    My chickens will follow people around like a pack of puppies if they have chips... They seem to like doritos the most. I swear they can hear a chip bag in the kitchen and will mass in front of the door like "You got something for us?" Another wacky thing they seem to go for big time is NOODLES- especially in a sauce. My cochin hen Atillia jumped up and grabbed a noodle as I was trying to eat on the back deck.. and grabbed my lip with it.
