    Hi,
    My son likes to eat cereal bars (or breakfast bars, to some) and every so often one rides around in his backpack or lunchbox for too long and gets flattened. He won't eat them in this state, and I wondered if I could give them every so often to the chickens. I have 7 total, and would probably give them just one bar a week, if even that often. Usually we get the organic kind, but not always.

    I know sugar is generally a no no, but I wasn't sure if in small doses it was o.k. I found a thread about bars that had chocolate in them, but these have no chocolate.

    This is the sort of thing I'm talking about:

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Good to know I won't be alone if I try! I'd eat them myself, but I don't like them all that much. I hate to waste them, because they're not cheap.
