    I had leftover sushi rolls (I know, I know. Leftover? How does that happen? It's like having leftover wine!)

    I gave the rolls to the chickens this morning, and realized about 20 minutes later that I forgot to take out the avocado. Have I just killed my chickens on Christmas morning?

    They'll be fine! They probably only got a miniscule amount. I fed my chickens avocados before I knew I shouldn't and they are all happy and healthy. I think the pit and skins of avocados are what's really bad for them, not the avocado itself.

    Thanks! I don't want this day to go down as a Christmas Day massacre.
