    I think it wise to avoid.
    Seeing as sausages are not really healthy for us humans...

    As a treat, in moderation, if it is safe for you, they should love it.

    Depending on the size of your chickens I would cut it up smaller so that they can eat at it easier. I feed mine meat scraps all the time ( 2-3 times a week) and they are fine, tho like the others have said everything in moderation so its should be fine
