    Does anyone know what types of treats and things I can feed my chickens daily to make their eggs taste better?

    Greens of all kinds! The beta carotene makes the yolks brighter gold and much tastier. Grass, kale, spinach...all green leafy stuff.

    Grass, Grass, and more Grass! Hens that have access to fresh pasture have much tastier eggs (In my and my customers opinions). Not only do you get the benefit of better quality eggs, but your girls get the benefit of having a healthier/more natural diet with bugs and greens.
