Can I feed bass to my layin hens? Got a pond full of em and it sounds like a good idea to me?
I think i read somewhere that if u give fish to chickens it might make there eggs and meat taste fishy I love catching and eating my own fish but to have my eggs taste like em...................
I found this sight and they tell you alot about feeding chicks. Its (lionsgrip.com/chickenshtml) Alot of game bird foods have fish meal in them for the protein. I am starting my bantams on gamebird starter its a higher protein less soy because they use fish meal.
It will not hurt the chickens. You might try it and see if it flavors the eggs then post your results. Experience is always welcome. I'm somewhat like Pringle. I read things but a lot of times I just don't know. I'd think if it were fresh fish, it would be less likely to flavor the eggs.
you will have to see that the fish is eaten in 20-40 minutes as spoilage is not good for chickens
with the summer months coming it will be a problem with feeding raw fish
and yes the eggs will taste like fish
SO keep the unused fish cleaned up good to avoid poisoning the chickens with spoiled fish
If left out in the chicken pen it will draw flies and other pests
