I often feed all kinds of peelings to my birds. I usually cook them first to make them easier to digest, but not always.

That is one of the wonderful things about chickens, you don't waste anything!

Peelings are fine as long as you don't give uncooked potato peelings. Raw potatos have a chemical that's actually poisionus to chickens but cooking them removes the problem.
