I had some cranberries go bad and want to feed them to my flock but I didn't know if cranberries are an okay food. It seemed random so if anybody knows that would be great. I will not feed the berries to them until I hear back.

Depends on what you mean by "go bad". Chickens are suseptible to food borne illness. I would not feed them anything I would not eat myself. Moldy, spoiled, rotten foods are not a good idea.

I fed mine a lot of cranberries around Thanksgiving, right out of the bag, 1 of the hens loved them so much she would just swallow them whole!
