    Acorns as a food source?

    Does anyone know if acorns can be used as a treat or food supplement for chickens? We have an overabundance of acorns this year. The chickens don't mess with them, but one day I was bored and split some open ( in half ) and the chickens were eating them. I didn't want to do too many incase...

    why did my chicken die?

    I found my hen dead laying under a scrubby red bud tree. It appears that she had been dust bathing.I don't see any marks on her at all. We have poke berry growing in the yard, but I don't think she ate any berries. She had been laying eggs since Aug. 24, 2013. I've been putting out bowls of...
