    We have a couple cans of "Double Q" Pink Salmon that we are not going to eat.

    Would this be okay to feed the chickens?

    YES. I give my girls boiled salmon and halibut all the time. Gone in 60 seconds. We usually have some that's left over from the previous fishing season, a little freezerburned, and they love it. One word of caution... once they figure out what it is, watch your fingers...talk about a feeding frenzy!

    Luxury! I hate to say it, since I feed my chickens everything, but maybe consider dropping those off at your local Food Pantry or Survival Center, along with a few pounds of pasta? Gotta feed the people too, and chickens can eat tabe scraps. which yu cannot take to the food pantry . . . just a lil thought.

    Lotta hungry folks out there right now.

    Sounds like a good idea [​IMG] (previous post)
    A bit for both never hurt anyone
