Don't feed them kiwi fruit it can kill them. Otherwise any fruit, but go easy with citrus.
I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things; right now I am so far behind I will never die.

I think (not sure) that avocado`s are bad for chooks, also citrus fruits. As far as i know all british orchard fruit is fine as they were normally given  free range in them. Melon rinds and seeds are ok in moderation and i think grapes and raisins should only be fed to them in small amounts.

As for the more exotic fruit they do not get a chance here. :)
