Table Scraps

OK, so everywhere I read says that chickens are little omnivore eating machines. I’ve been testing that theory out lately by giving them table scraps and leftovers in the refrigerators. However, I don’t give them anything, I do have a few rules.

– 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.
