    I have some leftover blocks of cheese that have been in the fridge and I was planning on giving them to my chickens. I have given them things with cheese on them like pizza, but never just blocks of cheese. Can the digest it ok?

    I give my chickens cheese curd all the time. I haven't noticed any adverse results from it.

    My chickens love cottage cheese!!! I give them the no fat, no salt kind, as a treat.

    That's my chickens' favorite treat! They especially like string cheese.
