    Is it OK for chickens to eat cat food? They discovered some recently and loved it. It wouldn't be anything more than an occasional treat.

    Occasional treat, very occasional - Yes. But it's best to give them cat food that isn't cheap and filled with grains.

    Cat food on a normal diet isn't great though as it is much too high in protein.
