    Hey everyone I have a question for you. I'm doing a project with my chickens that requires me to feed my chickens 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds a day for three weeks, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds a day for three weeks, and 1/4 cup of peanuts a day for three weeks. They will be getting there layer feed as well. Is this safe for them?

    The faster I find this out the better Thank You.

    as far as I know, chicken can eat just about anything except for meat.

    Chickens eat meat. Gobble it up. Won't hurt them either.

    Chickens are omnivores. Try putting your Thanksgiving turkey carcass in the run and see what happens!

    They can eat pretty much anything that doesn't eat them first.
