    Can chickens eat fresh pineapple? - I am talking about the outside edges that are cut off. Thanks!

    I know you asked about pineapple but they won't eat the rind from watermelon or cantaloupe so I wouldn't think they would eat the outside of pineapple.

    They won't eat the rind, but they might pick off every last bit of the pineapple.

    I've tried it and mine wouldn't eat it at all.
    They LOVE watermelon though

    Update: pineapple was a biggggg flop - "no way, no how!", the chickens said.
