    Mine got the left over seed form my small bird aviary. All the seeds my finches and other birds hate my chickens love?!

    They also got some cucumber and a couple of dragon fruits that I had in the fridge too long.

    My girls got plums, peaches and fresh corn today. The fruit was just a bit too ripe for my taste but they ate it right up. As an afternoon/evening treat they got some fresh corn and cheese - just the way they like it.

    They got some over-ripe tomato's from the garden and a handful of BOSS. Yesterday they had a snake but they scratched that up on their own - I sure didn't give it to them!

    That's the weirdest thing, our chickens absolutely LOVE tomatoes! And earwigs, we've made a trap to attract earwigs for the girls each morning. It's hilarious, they go wild !

    Yesterday I tried strawberries and later on, some cooked carrots. They didn't like either one :( So, reckon I'll just keep the berries for us and the carrots will go to the dogs. Oh, tried potato peels too (no green)...that went over like a lead balloon. They do seem to love the dandelions, which is a good thing! Think I'll hit the market in a bit and see if I can scrounge some cuttings for them. Also, have a couple ears of corn in the fridge that are getting a little dried out for my taste. Think I'll toss them in and see what they do.

    Leftover ground turkey with white kidney beans was a hit.

    I cleaned out the pantry and mixed up a bucket of treats: steel cut oats, bran, three grain porridge, Cream of Wheat, and bit of instant tapioca. In the fall I could probably cook it and serve it warm.

    Just bought some dried mealworms!!! I can't wait to get home and spoil my poor, solo chicken. I will be so happy when the babies get here on Tuesday!

    The girls get our veggie scraps everyday. They definitely do not like red bell peppers.
