People-food for chickens
My 11 chickens are about 3 months old now. This is the first flock of my own, since I was a kid. They're so much fun to feed because they seem to like everything!
Let's just say they get a lot of variety in their diet. In addition to their feed (I just switched from chick-starter to chicken feed), they eat grass, bugs, and leftovers.
They go wild over these crowd-pleasing treats:
cold spaghetti cut into worm-size bits, soggy raisin bran, mashed potatoes, potato chips, cooked rice, cooked beans, raisins, boiled egg yolks, and meat (yikes).
They also eat: bread, dry cereal, chopped apples, other fruits, stale pastries, flax-meal, oatmeal, chopped nuts, and leafy greens.
Does anyone else give their chickens people-food?
Do you think this is a good idea or not?
