    Can my chickens eat macaroni salad? There is mayonnaise, pasta, peppers and cucumbers in it.

    Thank you. [​IMG]

    My take on it is: when in doubt, offer it. If they don't like it, they won't eat it. If they do, its probably fine for them to eat it.

    Mine love leftover mac and cheese and other pasta salads. They would take that stuff over BOSS anyday.

    I don't think I've ever seen any 'unwanted' macaroni salad or potato salad in this house. They are big favorites. DH would probably give me a big stinkeye if I suggested giving any of that to the chicks. lol

    Good to know they can eat it though, just in case...
