    I thought this might be fun to see what your chickens WON'T eat. If you can believe this I have one that doesn't like mealworms. My husband thinks she's crazy. The other five go crazy for them but she just stands there looking at him as if saying is that all you have.

    For some reason my chickens don't like earthworms they used to go crazy for them when they were chicks.[​IMG]

    My chickens are young (6 weeks) but are not interested in watermelon, strawberries, lettuce or earthworms.

    They love mealworms (live or dried) and dogwood berries.

    I'm hoping their tastes grow more varied as they grow.

    Mine don't like carrots too but love the carrot tops (greens). I clamp them to the fence or else hold them for them. They strip off and eat only the green leaves.

    Mine have rejected Raspberries, spaghetti noodles (though they love the curly cue kind), cooked asparagus, cooked green beans, lettuce, scrambled eggs.
