Chickens Love Beets

I read it on the internet, so of course, it had to be true! And now I can verify from experience: Chickens love beets.

They really like the leaves. More than lettuce leaves or anything else I've thrown in there, and they like the leaves even when they are young. At some point, they figured out that they also like the red root part.

It's a pretty gruesome sight after the flock gets done eating beets, with the beaks all wet and red!
