They definitely do. First thing in the morning, Hamlet is under the wild Apple tree checking for windfalls. I watched him one day, he ate all he could find and started to wander away. A couple more fell at that moment, and they'd hardly touched the ground before he had them. And, he's welcome to them, our apples are all small and very wormy this year. Cows and goats love them too. Richard took the tractor out and used the bucket to give the tree a shake, and suddenly there was a feeding frenzy lol

we have a few cull potatoes from our big crop this year, no way we can eat ALL those before they spoil, so I cook a 5 quart pot morning and night, and feed to my chickens and Juliana pigs. Even our cats steal a few!

I cook peels and cull potatoes in a crock pot, along with some barley and soya beans. They grab the peels first and chase each other around for them.
