Treats for Chickens

Our chickens are getting bigger every day! It's so much fun to see them interact with each other, they all have such distinctive personalities. The little Ameraucana is always scratching in the dirt for worms, and the two Buff Orps are so friendly and docile-they're always the first ones to fly up onto my lap when I'm sitting out with them. Lately I've been experimenting with different treats and reading up on what they shouldn't have. So far I've found that they absolutely love cottage cheese, cabbage, acorn squash, and pumpkin. They weren't huge fans of carrots. Next I'm going to try some cooked pasta, I keep hearing they go crazy for it. It's so fun to watch them try something new. What do your chickens like to eat? I'd love some more ideas!

Here they are enjoying one of our leftover Halloween pumpkins
