    I am really new to the whole chicken thing loving it they are so funny, I am feeding them fresh veg and leftovers but i cooked a savoury rice with veg this evening and it contains curry powder, chilli powder and ground turmeric it not at all spicy but got no idea if it is ok to give them the left overs.
    Would really appreciate the advice on this [​IMG]

    They can't taste any of the (capsaicin) pepper based spices - they don't care.


    Feeding leftovers is fine as long as you don't feed them too much - people tend to feed their chickens way too much (mostly vegetable) treats, and that leads to nutrient issues and protien issues.

    If you're going to be regularly feeding them veggies, make sure they're on a higher protien diet (not layer feed), or make sure you're also giving them meat.
