They turned their beaks up at it...not pleased with me at all!
I'm not surprised.
My Ameraucana is so picky.
Hmm, I gave my girls some leftover gilled zucchini the other night and they loved it!
Funny how some love something and others don't.
Mine have always loved zuke. Someone even thought that's how I got green eggs. Heehee.
Mine didn't eat the zucchini either, grilled for raw!
grate it and sprinkle some chic starter or mash over it... birds are suspicious of anything new...
I have discovered with zucchini, the bigger the better. They really prefer the seeds, but will eat the flesh as well. Let them get about 2 feet long and eight inches across, then try it
Warning: be careful cutting them up when they get this big, the skin is TOUGH!
I made soome stuffed zucchini last week. I gave our chicken the seeds and scooped out stuff. We had some left over and I gave it to them. They gobbled it up!!
My zucchini has been on the ground and today I found a chipmunk eating it! Oh well...sprinkled the food on too! Big stinkers!
And still NO Eggs for my 24 EE's -19 almost 20 week old chickens!
I give my chickens whole overgrown zuccini and they eat it right up. I don't make one slice into it, they have to do all the work!
