Ricky’s Chickens Take the Health Food Challenge

Yesterday, Intern Carrie went beyond the call of duty when she downed some Kefir for the sake of the Health Food Challenge. Kefir is a fermented milk product and it was not a hit (to put it nicely) and we had a lot left over. What to do, what to do?

Well, I brought it home and fed it to my chickens. They LOVED it! They all gathered around, buried their beaks in it, slurped it, flung it, ate it off each others feathers and then licked the container I had poured the Kefir into.  And chickens don’t have tongues so I don’t know how they accomplished that.

As a new chicken owner this has not been the first time my chickens have floored me with what they like to eat. They like tomatoes, melons, cucumbers…but not green beans. They like breakfast cereal and stale bread but turn their beaks up at potato chips. The most perplexing thing my chickens love, though, are their own egg shells…chicken mayhem!

What is your chicken’s favorite food?
