    For mine it is, without a doubt, leftover Kraft mac & cheese. Anytime my kids don't finish theirs I don't sweat it, because I know my feathered kids are going to be loving life for a bit. [​IMG]

    They also enjoy Spaghetti-O's.

    Mine will eat most anything, but the best bet is mealworms!

    I give them very little, but they love bread.

    I give them everything, and they still like bread the most.

    Raisins, they go crazy.
     
  6. We cannot walk out the door without them all come running to the fence expecting their treat for the day. Usually it is crumbled up bread but on occasion they get fruit or melons. If we don't bring them something, like when we just go down to check for eggs, they cop an attitude and tell us off. They are way too spoiled......

    Are chickens EVER too full for treats, I was wondering today...[​IMG] Ours eat whatever isn't nailed down, but yesterday as I sat in a chair outside to eat my sandwich, one of our food-crazed NHR's jumped up on my lap and quick as anything, grabbed a bite out of my sandwich, then triumphantly hopped down, quite pleased with her "coup"! :eek:
