Chickens broke into a huge bag of treats.... Will they be ok?

post #1 of 4

So it's in the teens with a foot of snow, and I walk outside to check on my chickens. I open the coop and the big bag of happy hen treat mealworms is tore in half and empty. It's was a bit more than half full and I'm worried that they will get sick because of how many they ate. They have food and water in the coop along with a heat lamp ( they have been staying in the coop for a while because of the weather). My chickens are less than a year old and most are bantams. Will they be ok? Are that many treats going to hurt them?

They should be fine :). Eating tons of treats every day long term will cause some deficiencies but eating allot one time is ok. 

17 pigeons, 15 coturnix quail, 2 roos, 6 hens. Also 5 drakes, a CCL roo that thinks he's a drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars (chocolate gold), chocolate/brown pigeons and silver/brown coturnix quail. My next project is a dark chocolate colored chicken with deep red/gold base that lays bright green eggs. Yes, I like the color brown.
