    I was wondering if chickens could eat peanut butter or do you think they might choke on it? Could they get it stuck in their beak like people get it stuck on the roof of their mouth? What do you think?[​IMG]
     
  2. I've given it to them before. Wild birds eat it all the time, so why not chickens?

    I have given mine peanut butter that I mixed into a big ball with scratch grain and BOSS. They seemed to really like it!

    I like to core an apple and stuff it with peanut butter mixed with scratch. The girls go nuts for it! What so you mean by BOSS, by the way?

    Yes they can choke so the PB should be spread thinly over something like bread. They love it!
