Chickens will peck maggots off a rotting carcass

'I'm pretty sure a little avocado isn't going to hurt them

 

They would need to eat about 20% of their body weight to be affected

We grow Kiwi in our garden and our chickens do eat the fruit and skins but not the leaves. They also love papaya seeds so will probably eat the peels though we put the peels into our worm bin...'cuzz the worms gotta eat too!  

 

Insect larva seems to thrive in avocado shells and my chicken pick larva out of composting avocado shells but they do not eat the shells.

I once gave my chickens mango peels, though I don't know if they ate it or not it did not hurt them.:hu

I have 10 adult chickens, 13 chicks, 2 ducks, and 1 Yellow lab for a total of 26 animals.
