I have breads that have nuts in it. Nuts are harmful to some animals.
Can chickens eat nuts.  The bread is Oroweat Nutty Grain and Oat Nut.
Thanks

Mine gets nuts occasionally, never had a problem.
They'll chase the squirrels off peanuts and eat them, and any shells the squirrels leave behind.

I buy peanuts occasionally for a treat for my girls.  They BARELY wait for me to crack open the shell before grabbing... hmm

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

I bought some sunflower seed once and it had all kinds of "stuff" in in including dried fruit and nuts.. they gobbled the stuff so quickly .  They now get shelled peanuts once in a while.. I have not had any problems

Some of my girls like them and some don't. They get them a couple of times a week, various kinds, and the same ones will fight over them, the same ones will walk away from them.
