Anyone know why they love this stuff so much?
Ive wondered if its a colour thing or if maybe theres something in it they need or if its just a taste thing, but the moment its put in their food bowls, they seem to target it....
the wikipedia page makes for some interesting reading:
"... contains volatile oils similar to those found in plants in the related genus Tanacetum which includes tansy, and is likewise effective in eliminating intestinal worms ..."
(not that you can believe everything written on wikipedia)
Unrelated to the uncooked use, I've had chicory flavor coffee and it was quite revolting!
Well, its a type of lettuce, so theres not much to it other than filler (interesting about the possible anti-worms thing thought...not impossible, some foods have been shown to be very effective as natural "boosters" like silkworms and microbial paracites for example...)
Im thinking its the colour that sets them off, vivid purple/red... so probably glows in UV light to them lol
