    My friend killed 60 of his rabbits one time cuz he fed them cabbage. Apparently they don't have the ability to pass gas!! Do I need to worry about this with chickens (and goats if anyone knows)? I have a friend who gave me her leftover cabbages fm her garden.

    My chickens love cabbage. I hang a cabbage from a shepherds hook in the yard for a rousing game of Tether Cabbage a couple of times a week. Don't even need to chop it up; just force a long nail through the core, tie it to the shepherds hook with poly-cord and the chickens peck at it until it's gone.
