    What treats do you feed your chickens and how often?

    I have 6 girls all egg layers.

    I have given them crickets which they love and heard about scambleing eggs for them, shells and all but havent tried this yet.

    So would love to hear what your chickens love! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So your chicks are older? If they are laying, then the egg with shells are fine. Just make sure you crush them pretty good. If they are not laying yet, then just the egg, no shell. My "adult" chickens ( 1 yr old) are like little piggies. They will eat anything...grapes, mellon, eggs, cornbread...pretty much anything.

    Try hard boiled....for some reason, they like them better. Chickens will eat almost anything....fruits..( not citrus tho, and I read another thread on here they dont like bananas) veggies....( almost any kind) I just go through the fridge, once a week to clean it out. If I think they will eat it, I throw itin the yard. What they dont eat.....something else will, but I dont throw it in thier pen....only when I free range them.

    My chickens are over a year old. They love everything . One of their favorites is bananas we chop them up skins and all. They are also very partial to wheat bread. We can't let them free range so we cut branches and give them lots of that. They love scrub oaks and other weeds around the yard.
