As long as the beans are fully cooked, I don't see why not.  Raw or undercooked beans contain something harmful to chickens but fully cooked beans are OK.  Everything else looks good.

 I grow a little impatient when people seem to think that they are unique in the world. Of course they are. Just like everyone else.

I process about 25-30 of my own deer every year. They old guy that got me started on chickens would get all the bones from me. He crushed them and fed them to his chickens. It has something they really like.

I just had my own post about this. Its hunting season here and we try and use all of the animal we can. So the chickens get all the fat made into suet blocks. You know when you have Alaskan chickens when they take to Bou Blocks right away!
