    I have left over baby food, the blended fruit and veggie kind, and was wondering if they can eat it.... [​IMG]
    Any help appreciated! [​IMG]

    i don't see why not. just check the ingredients lists first to make sure there aren't any chicken no-no's in your particular baby food, and don't give them too much at a time since they're probably not used to concentrated fruits [​IMG]

    (conversely, if they're unopened jars, you may also be able to donate them to a local women's shelter or something. i only suggest because baby food is a pretty pricey chicken treat, when there might be people in need [​IMG] )

    Yeah its good for them & tuna, corn on the cob, melons, blueberries, strawberries, steak, pork (let them peck at a big piece of meat), and many more just dont give them salt, sugar, chicken, eggs, avacado, chocolate, raw nuts, citrus, raw potato/beans. [​IMG]

    What's wrong with raw nuts and raw beans? And why not chicken and eggs? Many people feed their chickens scrambled or hard boiled eggs.
