Have some leftover cornbread and wondered if I could give it to my girls.
Bread is fine. Just don't give them a lot at once.
noboby in my house will eat the bum end of the loaf of bread... so i feed it to my chickens
Chickens will eat bread until their crops are bursting. Thus the don't give them a lot at once. Whole grain is better for them (much like us).
I've found that bread is one of their favorite treats. My girls have used bread bits to teach the chickens tricks!
yes they'll eat it
Dogs, geese, chickens... they ALL get bread in my house...lol
We go to the Hostess store and get a 50g trash can FULL of loaves of bread for $5
Once a week treat for all!
I have been feeding all of my birds left over's of bread,eggshell's, green veggie's etc. for year's.I always try to divide it equaly between the different coop's so one group doesn't get too much.They go nutzzzzzzz for it.I used to buy a couple huge loaf's of day old french bread about once a week for my geese and duck's also.Good thing they usualy stayed at pond area hehe.Oh well they loved it anyway.
I have to feed my chickens bread by hand ..If i just throw it into the run the cockerel will go mad and fight the girls until he has it all .. Its funny to watch him with one peice in his mouth running round with the girls following him trying to get it off him.. not so funny seeing one of the girls with a piece and him grabbing them by the neck feathers and pinning them to the ground untill they surrender it to him
Iv fed my girls left over hot dog buns, they LOVED it. Just gotta be careful with how much at once you give them.
Quote:That's so funny! My roo won't eat hardly any of the treats... he jut watches his girls eat.
To OP - bread and grapes are my girls favorite treats.
