Who doesn't even know what an Edamame is?
I didn't until a few years ago.
I always thought soybeans were for animal feed and tofu-eating, vegetarian tree-huggers.
Well, it is for animals food, but it's also a yummy veggie when eaten in it's fresh state--edamame.
I even like tofu now.
That's okay, because I was always a tree-hugger anyway.

Back to my original post title--Who doesn't love edamame?
My chickens, that's who.
This morning, I took them out some leftovers from a stir fry we had earlier in the week.
Broccoli, tofu, carrots, mushrooms, edamame, zucchini, chicken and noodles.
They ate everything, but the edamame.
Yes, they even ate the chicken. I know, I know--cannibalism and all that.
Chickens don't have the same social mores' that we do.
The edamame just sat there, all by its lonesome. Trapped in a bowl that even the ants couldn't get in to.
If it were me, I'd have left the broccoli.
It isn't the first time they've shunned something I thought they'd love.
They eat so many other green things.
Why not the soy?
Why not the green fruit loops?
I wonder if they'd eat peas?
Or green sprinkles?
Wait, they ate the broccoli and the zucchini???
Scientific Method, here I come.
