    I know I've read that raw beans aren't good to feed the chickens. What about bean sprouts? Would that be okay for them?

    Forgot to add: I want to know, because we're hoping to sprout beans for them, and are wondering if it's okay if we throw the whole thing to them, or if we should separate the sprout from the bean.

    I've never been able to get a chicken to eat beans, but they loved bean sprouts!!! Great source of protein!
