I came home from school today and I noticed that my mother gave my chickens mashed potato and gravy. I know because I saw this food as leftovers last night. My mother puts salt in everything and she gave this gravy and mashed potato to the chickens. All of it was gone so they ate it all and my mother said that they enjoyed it. I felt so angry and just went and lied in my bed and cried. I cried because ever since i had got my chickens about 7 months ago, my parents have constantly been giving them junk food with big amount of salt and thinking its funny and I just can't take it, im feeling like crying just thinking about it. Please don't think i'm a weak immature boy for crying about this. I want to ask you, what level of salt is safe/dangerous to chickens (buff orpingtons). I also want to know a way to stop my parents giving my chickens junk. I was thinking about getting a few webcams and putting them around the garden near my bedroom window and putting the wires through my window, connecting it to a laptop and connect that to the internet so i can monitor what they give them and even if possible, set a really high alarm to go off and to only stop by my control if they move the food. I sound really stupid but please understand the feelings that i have worrying about my chickens when i have many other problems to cope with too. I am depressed and I just can't take this stress, some days I wish i was just dead but even better would be living in a house away from my family with my chickens so a ton of bricks can be lifted off my shoulders. Please just help me.
Thanks for reading.
