    Wow just about everything, many have different favorites. (Some won't touch a red worm others love them.)

    A guarenteed riot for the whole clan is a whole potted lettuce plant. Just dump the plant and all in with the girls, and it will disapear fast. (Of course grown in home made organic potting soil.) They eat the roots and all. Some of the dirt and any worms or bugs they find! It is an instant smorgasbord... [​IMG]

    Worms,
    Clementines (type of mandarin orange, but i don't give it to them very often, seems to flavor the eggs a bit)
    Corn
    Spinach (fresh)
    Bread
    and any plant in my yard that I'd prefer they left alone! They love my roses. [​IMG]

    Whatever happens to be in my hand at the time. If there is nothing in my hand, my pant leg or shoe will suffice. [​IMG]
