    There is a list somewhere on the forum that states what they can & can't eat. Just search the site.

    leftover spaghetti noodles (no sauce)

    question - anyone kno0w if chickens will be repulsed by Horseradish or Wasabi? i've got some egg-eaters & we tried baiting egg shells full of mustard, but they seem to LIKE the mustard!! think they will dislike the wasabi or horseradish if we add that to the mix? Hot Sauce?? I'm not sure if chickens have the "receptors" to sense that horseradish burn, and if they can't there's no point in using it... Thanks for any tips!

    Carrot peelings and some fancy organic popsicles that no one ended up liking. Except the chickens, that is! It's soooo hot I thought they would like a frozen treat. Oh, and some tomatoes that the robins got to before I did.

    My gals favorite is also yogurt, but with sunflower seeds, oatmeal and chilled red seedless grapes! (Sometimes I'll mix in a few dried mealworms). - very spoiled!
