What Thanksgiving feast are you giving your chickens?

Mine will get slightly old cucumbers, slightly old green beans, some squash seeds and cuttings, lettuce, pureed pumpkin, and probably some stuffing.

My wife feeds them to well now. I was just holding a 4 week old serama and she felt like a little butterball. But when weighed she is only 2 ounces. Can a 4 week old serama be too heavy at 2 ounces?

Back to your question-My guess is she will sneak the same Thanksgiving dinner that I'm getting to the birds when I'm not looking....minus the seasonings and sugar. And then I'll sneak out an take most of it away.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm from Canada, but I tend to give them extra ground up roasted soybeans, or a tomato on holidays

Not many scraps from prep today. Yam peels, egg shells and some egg whites, ends of celery stalks. The main flock did get to free range today, something I don't usually do, so they had run of the horse pens and manure heap. they seemed thankful :D
