Will marshmallows hurt chickens if they eat them?
You wouldn't want to feed them sugary treats.
If they got a bite on accident it shouldn't be a big deal.
Sugar, especially in such a sticky form, is really bad for their teeth...
They might try to set on a large marshmallow in the nest box!!
I don't think sweets are good for chickens. Here is the link to BYC Chicken Treat Chart. Scroll to the bottom of the page for what not to give chickens.
Since I don't eat food that doesn't have much nutritional value myself, I don't think that an occasional marshmallow would hurt, but I wouldn't make it part of their regular diet.

Yes they can, I give it to my chickens every other weekend, but I give them the mini marshmallows. They ADORE them. And it is not bad for them at all
In moderation, almost anything.
I've been known to dump leftover stale birthday cakes, icing and all.
Might have messed up their diet for the day, but so does MY birthday...
We all survived.
