I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png

Mangoes have one big seed, that the chickens wouldn't be able to eat.  The skin would probably be fine too.

Hey,

Mine got a lot of mango's this summer as they were frequently 6/a buck in the mark down bins. I just split it around from tip to tail, peeled a little back w/a tablespoon and after the first one the girls swarmed them. They won't eat the peel or seed.

cheers

We were sure our birds would love the seeds from a papaya. They hated them. Took one bite and shook their beaks off. They weren't interested in the fruit, either.
