    I am cleaning out my pantry and would like to give my chickens the dry pasta instead of throwing it out. It isn't very old, but a wheat allergy makes it necessary to eliminate pasta. Can I feed this to my chickens? If so, should I coo it first or will breaking it up and giving it to them dry be ok?

    Thank you,

    [​IMG] you can definitely give them pasta. I would cook it first though, they might not be too interested in it if it's dry

    Pour some steaming hot water over it and let it sit. An hour or two later, they'll love you forever.
