    If they will eat them then yes. Mine do not care for peas. I have tried the ducks and the chickens and even the brooder chicks but no one here cares for them. I guess they get too much else to care for plain peas.

    oh yeah, if they like them! I gave them frozen strawberries the other day and they LOVED them! I figure it helps keeps their core body temperature down which is needed on a hot day!

    My birds absolutely LOVE frozen peas and pretty much any frozen vegetables.

    Mine won't eat them unless the ducks are around. Then they gobble them up, guess they don't like the ducks and don't want to share.

    My ducks and chickens go into a feeding frenzy when I bring out the frozen peas.
    They eat lots of other "treats" but peas are their favourite for sure.

    I tried frozen corn this morning, they turned beaks and bills up at it. [​IMG]

    You may want to check the post in the emergency section someone fed peas to their chickens and they all died
