    I have a bag of Sun-Maid brand dried peaches... we dont like them. Wondering if they are OK to feed to the chickens? Ingredients on the back are "dried peaches prepared with sulfur dioxide as a preservative".

    I know fresh is always better. In the case, I just dont want to chuck them in the trash if they will enjoy them. Any thoughts?

    As long as it's not citrus fruit and it's fed in moderation it should be fine.

    Peaches should be fine, and mine like citrus too.
