A comment on another thread raised the question. I give the chooks almost all the kitchen waste. I don't give them: Citrus peels (they don't eat 'em) Anything moldy or really bad meat/dairy Coffee grounds The coffee grounds and citrus go onto the compost heap that is well away from the chickens. I just figured, they're active enough, they could hardly need the caffeine. But is it okay to let them have the coffee grounds? Will they eat it? Is there any benefit to it?
