Table Scraps

– No food that has spoiled
– No sweets or desserts
– No spicy foods
– Limit the processes foods
– No uncooked hard beans
– No potatoes with green spots

After a couple of weeks here’s my list of likes/dislikes. I will continue to update as the hens try more.

LIKE

lettuce
green beans
