Can they eat Strawberries???????

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I read the chicken treat chart but I didn't see strawberries listed.  Can chickens eat strawberries?  Someone gave me a crate full of strawberries and I wanted to give the strawberries to them but I didn't see it listed on the treat chart.

Mine massacred my strawberry patch last year and every one of the fatties is still alive and hungrier than ever today, so I say it's probably alright for them to have. roll

I just fed some strawberries to my chicks that are growing out right now, they went crazy for them. Remember though, always give treats in moderation, not as a food source.

I have a bunch of Checkerberries (Teaberries)  that I was going to pick for the new chicks as a treat?   Has anyone ever fed these to the chickens?
