    We live in orchard country and occasionally get some old nuts given to us. I thought my 8mo. old girls would like them but the nuts look kind of big. So since I read here that the hens like almond meal, I guess chopped nuts would be OK. Right? We are getting usually 5 eggs a day from 6 girls and we're very pleased. Just wanna keep them happy. I love all the good hints coming from BYC!

    Anything you feed has to be chopped to the size it will fit in the esophagus.
    No hands or teeth.

    Yes, my girls like nuts. If I'm being lazy I don't chop 'em up, I squash 'em with a brick. (the nuts, not the hens)
