Feeding Hens Dog Kibble?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I have 6 (5) month old hens. I also have a very picky chihuahua! I bought my dog food she will NOT eat. It's high quality. Can I feed the hard dog kibble to my hens? Thx for feedback!

People feed meat and cat food, I'm sure a bit of dog food is okay, I would see if they would eat it, but not too much at a time.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

X2.  I give a little dog or cat kibble as a treat.  When the birds are molting I give a little more as the extra protein seems to help them grow feathers.
