    MIne got leftover gristle and fat scraps from the beef barbecue. I've been feeling that they need more protein - they went CRAZY for this stuff. The dog was jealous. :) DOn't worry I never feed the chickens next to the dog or vice versa. That could get ugly.

    Mine had left over baked chicken.They love to pick the meat off of the bone. They also had some apricots that were wind blown.

    My 8yo daughter (my little chicken farmer) will tell us to shhhh when we mention cooking chicken or buying fried chicken. She will say, "they are just right there and they are listening". She does say it with a smile on her face and it has never stopped her from enjoying chicken cooked in just about any way.

    dancingflower68... it made me sooooo happy to see them actually eating the treats i gave them... maybe its because i cooked it especially for them :)
    i was getting so discouraged because when i gave them yogurt the other day they had NO interest in it whatsoever and i was afraid i was gonna have the only chicks who didnt like treats! especially because the next day i gave them a piece of bread and they also had no interest..
    I'm so glad i found something they like!!
