    Are grapes and pomegranates ok to feed to chickens? I know dogs shouldn't get grapes or raisins, but wasn't sure about chickens. My girls get kitchen scraps and love squash, tomatoes, watermelon rinds, etc. But I came across some grapes today that are a little too soft to eat, but not rotten. Same with the pomegranate, (I have a lot of fruit and veggies at my house. :))

    We call raisins "chicken crack" around here (some nights it's the only way we can get them in the coop). They also gobble up every grape we give them.
