    I would. It won't hurt them as a treat once in a while. Sounds good, why don't you just send those leftovers over here [​IMG]

    Beef ribs are fine. I'd go lightly on the cake, but every now and then won't hurt them. I give stale leftover dessert to mine on occasion, when it doesn't all get eaten up too fast.

    Chickens can't eat much chocolate for the same reason as dogs, they can't break down some of the substances in digestion. But small amounts are safe.

    I don't think it's good idea to feed the chocolate. Alot of people talk about how they got away with it and their chickens were fine, but if they get enough of it, it can make them sick or possibly kill them. be safe.

    But they'll act like monsters over the ribs [​IMG]
