    My chicken's like to eat rose petals and rose hips. They also really seem to enjoy the raw uncured olives that have been falling from the trees and shredded olive leaves.

    So far my flock has eaten (er, inhaled) absolutely everything I've fed them, they're incredibly open to new foods so it's super fun trying out stuff on them.

    But when when eat styrofoam off the coop walls that freaks me out, girls it ain't [​IMG] !!!

    Don't know if it's weird or not, but mine love kudzu. I didn't know it was edible. I need a thousand of them, my yard is being overrun.

    There's this one kind of tree with purple flowers...very common around here. Chickens loved the leaves.
