can chickens eat potatoes????

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I seem to remember hearing somewhere that potatoes are toxic to chickens, so I figured I ask here. I have some boiled potatoes left over; can my chickens eat them???

With skins on and boiled I am not sure if the toxicity is eliminated or not.  Peel em to be sure.

They can't eat the raw green potato skins, cooked not green are fine.
