    My chickens love bread and potatoes too. Do your chickens like the same or do your chickens have a different favorite treat. Post some picture with your chickens eating that treat if you can.

    Mine love everything except carrots and broccoli... Corn is probably their favorite next to watermelon and strawberries.

    I like to think back to when we weren't buried 2 ft in snow and the watermelon flowed like wine..

    CHICKEN and watermelon. Geez, lately the staff has been letting so many posts fly by when there's already a thread on it?

    Favorite treat? Whatever I'm carrying out to them! No picky eaters in our flock. Left overs, hot oatmeal, grapes, any kind of greens, sure--watermelon too. I cannot remember a thing they've left in their run, except maybe the barest of rinds of squash and melon and pecked out corn cobs. Omnivores, for certain! ~G Oops, I forgot. Mice when we catch them, but only when they are alive and running!
