can chickens eat beans?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was informed by a reliable source that chickens can not pass gas.  And not to feed them beans, cabbage  or any type of food that produces this.  Does anyone know if this is true?  I am just trying to find different types of food to feed my girls.

My chickens will eat just about anything you give them.  Including beans and not a single on has exploded from gas buildup. 


I feed mine some crawfish heads and shells from superbowl weekend .   The yolks were almost a crawfish red color.
