    Hi everybody! There was another post similar to this, but it got up to some 8 thousand replies, so I thought it was time to start a new one.

    Have fun! I'll start:

    BOSS, corn, cat food, radish leaves, string cheese, yogurt, garlic bread, biscuits, and bread.

    They all had full crops after that meal! [​IMG]

    Today - pumpkin walnut bread, tomatoes, chicken salad, meatloaf, and bread crust.

    It was the first time my 5-week old's got tomato scraps - LOL - chicken football!!!

    Frozen peas in a Kong dog toy.. a million times better than watching tv! Watching them kick that thing all over the yard trying to get peas to fall out is hilarious.
    They got the cabbage tether ball today... they were not so excited about that...

    My girls get alot of greens.. I like the greenish yolks..

    Fun thread! Im curious to see what kind of treats everyone is getting... and to get some new ideas [​IMG]

    I give them lentils and split peas as scratch daily and this morning they got leftover pancakes. That was a rare treat, cuz we don't usually have leftover pancakes!! [​IMG]

    At the moment their favorite is crickets, but I give those sparingly. 11ยข each at Pet Smart.

    This group isn't too hot on grapes, my old chickens loved grapes. Rice is a close second for both the new and old flock.

    Leftover tuna noodle casserole. They scarfed it down quicker than anything I have ever seen yet. Noodles were flying everywhere! Next time, I think they will need some napkins! [​IMG]
