    Can Chickens Eat Grapes? at the end of October, I Got JUST Cracked Corn, Not Pellets, And Asked About JUST Feeding them Corn.

    The Answer Was " No, Get them Pellets And Corn in the winter " From Every Body Here on BYC.

    My Mother has Not got pellets to go with the corn yet, She has not had the time....

    In the Mean time, To Give them MORE Variety, I Want to give them Grapes, Which we Have Plenty of.

    but Can Chickens Eat Grapes?

    will it Hurt them?

    Will it Help them?

    Will it Kill them?

    Yep, my chickens, turkeys & peafowl love them, but the pigeons won't touch them.

    Are you kidding?! Chickens will eat up grapes so fast they choke! I try to cut them up, as one will eat it whole before another one tries to steal it.

    I love just tossing half a grape at them at a time, and watching them chase each other around the yard! [​IMG]

    Quote:yes you can give them grapes, I cut them in half and only give them seedless grapes.

    am I understanding this correctly, your chickens are only eating cracked corn?

    I would definitely feed layer pellets in addition to cracked corn and other treats like grapes! Grapes are an absolute favorite with my girls. [​IMG]

    yes, I AM Only Giving them Cracked Corn now, But Today my Mom is Suppose to Get Some Crumbles* For them.

    we did not Know That you were supposed to give them Corn AND pellets*, Until I Asked on BYC If you Can only Give them Cracked Corn.

    Again, Today my Mom is Going to get Crumbles* For them.


    * Crumbles, Pellets, Same thing, Different Style, Eh?
