I often toss celery to ours. We get a lot of it as grocery store "culls". The girlies really seem like it- it disappears faster than some other things.


I feed it in moderation though. It does have helpful vitamins A/C/K/B6 and potassium, riboflavin (B2), and phosphorus. But it's also on the salty side...chickens cannot handle high sodium levels.

Celery has no protein content either. So be aware it will reduce the total average protein intake for your girls when you feed it. Again....small amounts.

Its funny as I also toss in celery- cooked and uncooked. Lately they have not been enjoying it, but that happens when they have a choice.
