Apparently, chickens like squashes and pumpkins. I heard stories of leaving half a squash in the run, and it being devoured by grateful chooks, so I decided to try it with my Girls.

Half a butternut squash was delivered to their run and placed, invitingly, on one of the branches.

The Girls turned their beaks up at it.

I filled a Swingball ball with some white cabbage, and put a few slivers of squash (from the other half). Hung it in the Run, and the Girls immediately started squabbling over the squash pieces.

I pushed a hole in the forlorn half squash, and hung it up near the Swingball. They ignored it completely.

Maybe they will "discover" it later?
