    So my girls eat a lot of different things but if I throw out green beans to then they act as though I am trying to poison them they will not touch them for nothing same with cabbage. they like lettuce but wont touch cabbage.

    is there anything your chickens wont touch.

    Mine eat a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits, but one fruit that comes to mind that all 5 seem to dislike is bananas.

    I tried spaghetti squash yesterday because the family didn't like it, so I tried to give it to the chickens....they wouldn't touch it either...

    Beans. Black beans, kidney beans, great northern beans. If I give them leftover chili, they'll eat around the beans. They can pick through beans better than my children! But, they love green beans.

    And broccoli heads. They love the green leaves removed from home grown broccoli but not the heads, even if cooked.
