    If I ever have extra iceberg lettuce leftover, can I feed it to my flock?

    chickens can eat lettuce, I feed mine refrigerated and sometimes frozen since it's super hot in Texas. DON'T feed them corn in really hot temperatures. Remember how to cook popcorn? Exactly. The corn will get hot in their stomachs.
