    Can Chickens eat most any produce? Bananas, Apples, Oranges, without hurting the eggs?

    Some lists will say no citrus, but I have seen a lot of people say they never have trouble with feeding it to the hens

    You only have to a void dry beans. Sprouted and cooked is fine.

    Quote:That's good to know because many a time I've made a pot of butter beans and turnip greens to share with the girls. Usually even included a little cornbread for them. [​IMG]
