Whilst my hens have the run of the plot and eat layers pellets/grain and have a supply of grit mixed in, I wondered what other bits and bobs I could give them?

Anything veggy prepared in the garden...once it goes inside the house it becomes kitchen waste and is forbidden to be used.

Not raw spuds though, or rhubarb they love sweetcrn, spinach, various brassicas..although mine don't like cabbages much unless they can steal them..

Wholemeal bread, soaked in warm water and broken into small bits..I have a jar of marmite outside in the shed just for the chooks and I disolve a bit in water to moisten wholemeak bread crusts.

Rice and pasta..they love it!

Fruit, dried fruit..my lot love apples ( which is handy as they live in the orchard!)

Is that a few ideas?

They are loving egg noodles and one is producing more than 1 egg per day!

Chafer grubs the root eaters (not rose chafer though - they go back into the compost heap)
Baby lizards are the absolute favourate
