    I have some stale Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies wondering if cereal is bad for Chickens?

    Dont think so, The DW uses them for treats all the time. The sugar coated might rot their teeth though. LOL [​IMG]

    But is there a certain kind of cereal I shouldn't give them, I also have a box of Lucky Charms and Honey Smacks, those two I was not so sure about.
