    Hi everyone. Can I feed my 4 month old chickens raw lentils and split peas?

    As long as they have access to Grit, then they can have some in addition to their normal feedings.

    Some dry beans are harmful, but I have read on here about others feeding lintels to their birds without any harm....

    Lentils & split peas are fine raw.
