Can chickens eat cinnamon?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I want to give them some of the oatmeal I had leftover for breakfast, but it has cinnamon in it. Is it okay for them to eat it?

You'd probably have to put so much in that you wouldn't want to eat it yourself for it to bother the birds.  Mine love cooked oatmeal no matter what I put in it.

Cinnamon is fine.

Currently chicken-less, hoping to get a fresh start soon.
My wish-list: Old English Game Bantams, American Game, D'uccles, Japanese Bantams, Bantam Cornish, Large Fowl Cornish, Lakenvelders, Welsummers, Kraienkoppen, Andalusians, Speckled Sussex, Cubalaya, Sumatra, Easter Egger (large and bantam), Orpingtons, Iowa Blue, Marans...I think I'm going to need a lot of pens!

I asked a friend how her chickens lay eggs with such deep yellow/orange yolks. She does not allow her chickens to free range like ours do. She said its because she pours cinnamon on their feed.
