Are peanut shells beneficial to chickens? Harmful?

I doubt they can harm them, but I don't think they really have any nutritional value nor would I think the birds would have any inclination to eat them.

I would avoid salted ones but if you can get the chickens to actually eat them they won't be harmful as a treat...

They are 60 percent crude fiber, 25 percent cellulose, 8 percent water, 6 percent crude protein, 2 percent ash and 1 percent fat.

All in all there are worse treats...
