    I have been making rhubarb juice out of my bounty of rhubarb from the garden, but now I have a ton of pulp left that I either need to compost or give to the chickens. I have so much pulp, I've already put so much to good use otherwise. Now I'm sick of it and wonder if I can give the cooked pulp to the chickens. Obviously it's not raw, it's just the stalk and no leaves. I know the leaves can be toxic.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. You are so lucky to have rhubarb!! Sounds like it could be overload,though, depending on the number of chickens that you have. I would compost it.....
