    My first brood of chicks when I started raising chickens ate part of a chicken strip from Burger King. I also have let them eat potato peelings and watermelon, cornflakes and rice crispies!!![​IMG]

    Mine love chicken!?!? Go figure! They also love the usual things like left over chix noodle soup, stuffing, old homemade bread, strawberry hulls, etc. But the strangest thing they seem to pick at this winter was the plastic tarp we wrapped around most of their pen (on the outside of course) to help block some of the wind/snow. Weird birds! [​IMG]
