    Probably. Chickens eat an amazing array of junk you wouldn't think would be good... That said, I might be reluctant only because a crop full of dough just sounds like it could be problematic. Just me.

    A crop full of dough, good point. Does it count if its dried out?

    What shape pasta? I love to boil up a pound of spaghetti, cool it off, and watch my chickens do the wormie dance. You'll be making pasta every day!
