    Can I feed chickens and ducks banana's??? I have not seen this mentioned before and I have a couple banana's that are going bad on me... Or should I just give them to the pigs???

    Thanks

    My parrot loves bananas, as do my spaniels. I would give banana to my chickens, if there were ever any left. [​IMG]

    Mine must be picky. I tried but that just turned their beaks up to it.

    Mine get bananas in their oatmeal every morning. They like peaches in their oatmeal better though.
