    My girls seem to like brown rice and corn, they wait for me every day hoping I will bring them some. But I am looking for other treats to give them especially in the winter when they will be stuck inside longer. I don't want them to get too bored!!!!

    to much to list..... everything left over from the dinner table..... they love to see the wife coming with the scrap bucket.... haven't found anything they don't like.... plus i like the fact that nothing goes to waste and it cuts down on buying feed.... they have constant feed available but love the table scraps....
