    I gave some must from crushed wine grapes today. Since tbey eat regular grapes thats ok right? I figured there are seeds but its crushed so they can see them and choose not to eat em. Whatcha think?

    Is it post fermentation? Like you got it after it was pressed into wine? If so, it probably has some residual alcohol in it but I cant say for sure. Mostly empty calories since all the sugar has been fermented out. I probably would stick to just a tiny bit and not overfeed it. BTW chickens LOVE seeds! Thats the first thing mine go for when I throw them oversized veggies.

    great. and they surely love it. So much so that they laid an egg where i plopped down the pile of grape crush. Odd, but interesting
