    Do dried cranberries harm peafowl if they eat them? They are like the dried raisins.
    Thanks

    If you dry your own it's ok but the store bought ones have alot of sugar and should not be fed in great amounts.
    I keep cranberries in my freezer and feed them to my peas after i thaw them out, sometimes they gobble them up other times they don't hardly touch them, but my birds are totally free ranged so they eat all kinds of stuff and just may not be in the mood for them.

    I don't think there is anything my chickens will not eat.
    The peas love bannas too but if i put one out whole they will walk away, cut it up into bite size and they devower them, guieas and chicklens don't care they don't mind pecking it to peices.
