Are raw collard/mustard greens okay to feed to the chickens?
Yes! Greens are very good for chickens.
You kiddin'? You'll have a feeding frenzy on your hands - they LOVE them and they are very nutritious! They will also help the egg yolks to stay nice & dark!! I stuff them into a suet feeder that hangs from the roof of my run. Takes them a little while to get them out, so it gives them something to do.
When I worked in the hosp. as a nurse we gave tube feeding to patients that were suppose to be complete diets. They would go down quickly. They would catch everthing that came along. However, if they went home and their family made up a suppliment of ordinary food in the blender they got along well. I wonder how complete our chick feeds really are as well.
Yes to greens chopped fine for chicks( we call them biddies here) I think they need the foods they would find in the wild. jean
