Can I feed my chickens canned red kidney beans?

I have read no raw or dry beans. Do I need to cook canned beans before feeding them?

I don't know about feeding chickens legumes. But I do know the canned beans are already cooked.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Canned beans are already cooked so - yes - you can feed them to your flock straight from the can. I give my girls cooked legumes every once in a while as a protein boost.

 

However . . . the great majority of my girls turn up their beaks at kidney beans. I've got one or two who eat them all!

Ok. I wasn't sure if they needed to be cooked again or could be served out of the can or not served at all! I noticed I have a relatively large stock of them and thought if they could eat them I would have more room in my pantry!

Well I have 29 chickens so hopefully 1 or 2 like them! I just got them sunday and they sure love when I bring the food scrap dish in the morning!

Yes, canned beans should be fine.

 

Mine often get them with other leftover "treats".
