    Yes, but I'd wouldn't give them all at once. Most breads don't have alot of nutrition, and the chickens would be filling up on empty calories.

    I just pick off the moldy spots and still eat the bread.

    I remove the moldy parts and give them the rest.

    I feed mine moldy bread quite often with no adverse affects. It's quite funny watching them chase each other around in the version of chicken keep away.
