    I fed them some cheese and bread. They ate the cheese in a few seconds (And it was a whole slice of cheese so it was pretty impressive!) but they took their time on the bread. They really like cheese and meat more than anything! [​IMG]

    Watermelon and a piece of toast. The other day they REALLY enjoyed an ear of corn that got a bit too dark while being cooked on the bbqer.

    I took the powder from the chick food and mixed it with some baby formula, powdery dog food remnants, old craisens, mealy wormy cereal, and whatever else I had in the fridge til it was barely wet. They gobbled it right up.

    I gave them a little each of corn, rice, peaches, mustard leaves, red and green spinach. I only give them chicken feed 2 times a week. I will try to raise my own dubia roaches for them.

    I picked my girls some blackberries from a bush they love. They jump up as high as they can and I pick the rest! lol! Funny thing is, my rooster will not eat them. He takes it from my hand and gives it to the hens. Real sweet heart, huh? ;o) I also gave them some banana but they didn't eat it. They pecked at it and then wiped their beaks on the grass! lol!
