    Hi BYCers, we have some left over fresh Chantrel (spelling?) mushrooms, and I was wondering if the chickens can eat them?

    I always question mushrooms as food.

    Our chickens eat more or less anything. if there's mushroom in leftovers, they'll eat it too. I don't know much about different types though.

    My chicks and chickens are very picky about what they eat. My opinion is, if they have plenty of chicken feed and I give them something extra, they will only eat it if it's good for them... But of coarse I'm not an expert! [​IMG]
