I was given some canned sweet potato's and mix veggies. Is it safe to feed this to the chickens as long as it has not expired. I thought the sweet potato would help yellow up there egg yolk thats why i wanted to give it to them. What do you think

Check the ingredients for added salts or sugars. If it just lists vegetables and maybe water then it should be fine. If it has other stuff to preserve or flavor it then I wouldn't.

I've seen chickens eat things that would make a billy goat puke...I really can't see that a few canned sweet potatoes would hurt them.

I have a scrap bowl that sits by my sink (the same as my Mother and Grandmother)...any food that's left on a plate is scraped into this bowl and tossed to the chickens. The only thing that's not put in the bowl are bones.
