    My chicks like tiny slivers of cheese- about the size of a pencil eraser or the nail of your smallest finger. They also really like chopped up hard boiled eggs, and seem to enjoy the yolk more than the white. I've also given them carrot peelings which they munched up pretty quickly.

    Chickens love just about anything. Mine love fresh veggies, Mashed up Hard boiled eggs, fresh fruits ect......DO NOT Give treats often, nor give them junk food. Chickens will eat Junk first,a nd then wont eat their food. Just like kids, treats must be given in Moderation.

    I have found that my kids like pasta noodles and broccili(sp)

    I cook both first so they are soft.
