If you guessed # 3, you're right! Yesterday, I put out about 2 cups of stale Apple Jacks cereal. They come in two colors---yellow and green. Since the whole works is artificially flavored and colored, I figured they tasted the same. Well, evidently my chickens prefer the yellow ones over the green ones. Do they taste different? Can they really see color? I really never thought about it, but I was fascinated to go out an find this pile of uneaten green ones. They feel the same way about green beans too. I gave them some leftover pasta salad yesterday too. They ate the orzo, herbs and chickpeas, but left the green beans. They eat grass like it's going out of style, but won't eat green beans and green Apple Jacks. Go figure?
