peanutbutter??

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Ok, I am sure yall are the same way I am getting to be.... anytime something kitchen scrap is to be thrown out, I ask "who can eat that?" before it goes to compost bucket.

So tonight when my daughter asked if we have any use for the peanut butter tub... well you know the drill.

Can chickens eat creamy peanut butter? It just the little bit that we can't get out with a knife or spoon. was going to cut can in half and let them have at it....

Any ideas? thanks

I throw everything out to the chickens ,and what I have learned is if they don't like it ,or if it will hurt them they leave it alone This is only IMO wink

Mine love peanutbutter and its nice and fattening too. lol I cook mine down until it melts and then add popped milo, BOSS and other goodies. I make a "cake" out of it and they eat on it for a couple of days.

Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?

I will throw a soon full of PB in their warm oatmeal in the mornings for added protein. Yes they can have it, its funny to watch them eat a PB&J sandwich

I mix mine in with bird seed or BOSS, add a bit of melted fat and make cakes out of it. they LOVE it.

Howdy,

 

I've started adding it to some scratch when I'm training them to come when called.  They love it and it adds some nutritional value to the scratch (protein and fat).  Its also fun to watch them eat it.  :)  The one thing that chickens can't have that we eat is potatoes so just be careful there.
