    Can I let my chickens have the fallen apricots?

    Thanks, I looked at the treat chart before posting and there was no apricots on there. So that is why I asked. They are from my neighbors tree, and they are pulling them off and throwing them into boxes, most have spots where the birds have already pecked them, but all of them even the ones on the trees have these black spots/dots on them. He said that they are freckles and he's eating them, so I guess they are fine.

    They're fine. Chickens can eat pretty much anything.
