I have a garden pond with large goldfish and koi. Earlier this year I bought a 50lb bag of catfish food (16.90 for 50lb) to feed the goldfish and koi instead of the normal koi food ($48 for less than 5 lbs). The problem, I started feeding it and about a week later the goldfish started dying. Most of these goldfish are about 5-6 years old and are quite the little moby dicks, quite large. They were able to swallow the round pellets with no problems. I put two and two together and figured the catfish food was the problem. Maybe it was to big and they could not digest it. I didn't have a single koi die but they are twice the size of the goldfish. I have not had one die since I stopped. My question, I hate to just throw it away do you think it would hurt the chickens if I feed it to them? I would like to feed it this fall when they start to molt. I usually feed a little dry cat food for the higher protein. It is 32% protein and the main ingredient is fish meal. I figure if I feed it a handful at a time the worse thing is I might get a little run poo.
