    Ok so I know it's a dumb ? but I'm new at this..... I'm cleaning out and found a bag of chex mix from Christmas. Do I toss it over the hill or over to the chickens??

    its pretty salty if its a traditional recipe, you could feed it in very small quantities as an occasional treat. I probably wouldnt bother and would toss it, they get enough treats as it is that I feel good about. Got a leftover pot of kidney beans and frozen corn, some sprouted wheat grass and some grapes we found too sour...they are stuffed with good healthy treats [​IMG]

    Don't think it would hurt them as a one time thing but I have had the same debate with similar cracker-type stuff and decided it was just too much salt for them.

    If something is extra salty, think leftover ramen, I soak it in water a bit and then drain it before giving it to them.

    It would be a bit salty all at once, but I would just mix a little in each time you mix them up other treats. Mix a little in at a time with scrambled egg here and there.
