    Can chickens eat rutabaga scraps? Including the peel? Can't find a yes or no anywhere online... [​IMG]

    I haven't tried rutabaga but I did put some fresh beets with tops in the coop a couple of days ago, they eat all of it.

    I'd skip the peels if they are storebought.
    Most groceries wax the peels so they don't get bruised.

    If your rutabagas are homegrown then the peels are probably fine to feed.
