Someone on a backyard chickens Facebook page that I'm on says she feeds her chickens warm oatmeal and wet cat food on really cold mornings. I've been giving them oatmeal which they love. I kind of hate buying dried meal worms. They are expensive and get smelly after a while. I just can't do the live ones. Ew... I did try. They gross me out and they all died too quickly anyway so I've been using the dried ones. I've heard both yes it's ok to feed chickens cat food on occasion and NO don't do it! So, what's the deal about cat food and chickens? If you DO feed it to your chickens what kind/brand, how much and how often do you give it to them? I would like to replace meal worms with cat food if I can. I know I can buy a 24 box of canned Fancy Feast for about 15 dollars at Petco.
