    It runs between Purina Flock Raiser and a local farmers feed.

    If you mean regular feed- I have noticed my flock cleans out the flock raiser faster then the lay crumble. They DONT care for the farmers best brand as much as the purina when it comes to the lay crumble.

    Corn with BOSS is a favorite treat, but by far the favorite treat is meal worms. There arent enough of those on the whole planet to satisfy their lust for those wiggly treats!

    Fresh corn on the cob for mine too. As they get older they are now liking BOSS and scratch, but it's taken awhile. I've been thinking for the longest time that I've got "backwards" chickens, they don't seem to like anything that everyone else posts that their chickens just love. Watermelon-nope. Pumpkin raw or cooked-nope. Grapes-I ended up eating the whole bag myself. Scratch or BOSS-take it or leave it, but they are eating it more now that it's cold.

    Mine love anything that is not intended for them. This includes busting in to the duckling pen and eating all their food...following me around begging for dog food when I'm feeding dogs...and eating all the pigeons' food [​IMG]

    I thought you were asking about feed --not treats! LOL


    Each day, I pull up huge bunches of greens and throw them into the run... Before night there are just stalks left.... BUT I think they would learn to speak for the freeze dried mealworns and crickets they get every week!! Two weeks ago, I cut the top off a pumkin and cut smaller holes on the sides and pour the crickets and mealworms.. IT was the funniest thing you have ever seen! LOL
