Has anyone fed sunflower seeds to chickens for Protien
Black oil sunflower seeds, also known as "BOSS" - you betcha! BOSS helps promote feather growth, too. It's about 15% protein. I usually give them BOSS as a treat once a day. It's their second favorite treat!
I don't, but lots of people give their birds some BOSS (black oil sunfflower seed) I believe. Love the screen name.
Yup, use them
Thank You i will try them
Non salted that is
Definitely. BOSS in the shell. They love it.
My hens love it, it's a daily treat. I sometimes mix in cracked corn, or meal worms, or crushed egg shell to add some variety for them. I also have a toddler who loves to feed treats to the chickens, they already come running as soon as they see her!
Has anyone ever had a chicken get a sunflower seed stuck in it's throat? Is it safe to feed the sunflower seeds with the shell on?
Yes it's safe. I have never had any of my birds get choked or have a seed stuck in it's throat.
