The Sims' chickens enjoy a lunchtime snack on Wednesday. In the 18 months they've had chickens, they have spent between $30-$50 on feed for the birds. They feed them food scraps and also let the birds scavenge for bugs and weeds in their backyard. They used an old light fixture as a feeding trough.
