I actually get this question quite a bit. So, it seemed only prudent to write a post about chickens and their eating habits. By now, I’m sure that you have figured out that chickens know what they like. They also are sometimes hesitant to try new things, like the time I plopped a whole pumpkin into the chicken run. Chickens are actually pretty easy to care for and that includes feeding backyard chickens. Did you know that chickens will not overeat?
