    They love cooked egg and chicken. [​IMG]
    Oh, and mine have a preference for grapes as well, weirdly enough. They'll go crazy for those.

    Quote:My chickens love the turkey carcass! Last year I gave them the ham bone with some meat left on it. Not a great idea because of the salt content of the ham, but they devoured it.

    The fresh ones? Really? Whole or do you chop them up? I thought they would be too tart, but then I don't have chicken taste buds either. Mine can tell when I have been to the produce store and come home with old(er) pomegranets though, even before I take one outside, their little voices change. (Not to be confused with the little voices in my head) I do cut those in half for them. They just love it when I take a banana outside,too but they aren't very patient while I peel it.[​IMG]

    i believe they do have taste buds or something for example, most my chickens like tomatoes except one but he sure like cooked carrots but most of them don't like cooked green beans

    I'd say they definitely have taste buds, or the ability to taste. Only two of mine like bananas. Nobody will eat peas. Some like pasta while others don't. [​IMG]
