Is oats good for chickens ?
Yes, as long as they're nekid..
Whole oats, like BOSS is high in fiber, not good to feed them too much. I'm not sure if these or TSC's is considered naked, how much of the hull is left. If they are naked I read up to 60% of they're diet can be oats, replacing all grain, soy, and oil. Unhulled 3%.
I plan on sprouting them, in the hull also has anti-nutrient properties that is eliminated by sprouting. I don't know if TSC Dumor oats will sprout, they are $15.99 they also have oats for deer food plots Plot Spike, $25.99 I know they will sprout.
If they're good oats $5 is pretty cheap, cheaper than cracked corn and corn doesn't have the protein vitamins and good oils of oats.
