    Does anyone know if coconut milk made from coconut cream and carageenan is safe for chickens. My kids tried it, hated it, won't drink it. Hate to waste a $1 worth of food these days. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    A lot of fat, but it should be OK to feed. I'd mix it in with some of their mash feed, corn meal, rolled oats, or something to make it easier for them.

    Now, whether they'll want to eat it is another matter.
