    Can I feed mango, papaya, and kiwi peels to my chickens?

    I made a fancy fruit salad for an event today and have a bowl of peelings. I scanned some of the posts here on what chickens could eat, but didn't see these.

    Carefresh in brooder?

    I've read both pros and cons to using pine shavings in the brooder. My new chicks just came today and I put Carefresh in their brooder. (Carefresh is recycled but not bleached paper meant as litter for small animals.) I'm debating whether it's a good idea in the brooder though since I'm...
