    I bought a box of grape-nuts cereal thinking I'd be all healthy. Well, it is about the most disgusting thing I have ever had in my life... I think the box might taste better. Anyway though, can I feed it to my chickens?? Had to waste it.
    Thanks

    hahahah good ole grape nuts. Definately an aquired taste. I think the secret might be to let them soak up some milk and soften up a bit before you eat them. But still strange stuff I agree. I bet chickens would love them. I gave my chickens some leftover cream of wheat and then read something about chickens not having wheat...so, I would check it out first.

    I'm glad this question came up. I also have some leftover Grape Nuts (not a lot though because I ate most of it) and was planning on sprinkling the rest of it in the run. Guess I'll wait and see if someone knows for sure whether or not chickens can eat it.[​IMG]

    Oh, and they stay crunchy for at least a half hour. LOL

    TRY putting HOT WATER over your Grape Nuts! It makes a good HOT CEREAL (like Cream of Wheat, but better). [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Personally I like Grape Nuts but to each his own.
    A general rule of thumb is if you can eat it chickens can eat it.
