    I have some goatmilk that has been in my fridge for about a month. Is it OK to give to the chickens?

    If it's actually spoiled it's not a good idea to give it to them. If it's just "old" and not rotten, then it should be fine.

    I've heard milk was not good for them. However, some folk mix in buttermilk with active pro-biotic cultures with feed and some have used calf-mana. [​IMG]
