    Mine won't touch stale or toasted bread and they won't even look at a tomato.
    They did eat some leftover mac n cheese and black eye peas yesterday though.

    Mine sure didn't care for the fried green tomatoes I made! You know I don't think they turned out very good either! [​IMG] They like red tomatoes, but didn't even like the fresh sliced green tomatoes.[​IMG]

    Mine don't like anything too watery, eg. watermelon, but also will not eat apples or carrots. They won't eat lettuce anymore either, preferring the lawn instead.

    Mine don't eat the potato peels but that's good since they are bad for them, they also don't eat spiny plants or apple peels.

    I gave mine burnt chili once, that's the only thing I have ever seen them not eat!!
  8. Lettuce, cabbage, greens in general, I guess.

    We've been spoiling the heck out of 'em w/ grapes from our vines so now they won't even touch BOSS or whole wheat/oats. Ooops!

    Ohhh I would LOVE some fried green tomatos myself. Let's see, they pretty much will eat anything as they get older and shun some things when they are younger. I gave them a quarter of watermelon the other day that had been in the fridge and was starting to go, they stripped it clean and even started on the end of the rind. At first they would not eat lettuce, now they kind of do but are picky about it. Love bread, crackers, dry oatmeal and do back flips for spaghetti. I guess we all have different chickens with different taste. Funny. Now I am DYING for fried green tomatoes.[​IMG]
