    [​IMG]I am new to the raising chickens. I have twelve splecked sussex chicks (three weeks old) and one roo/four hens wyndonates (nine months old) I purchased from a friend. I would like to feed the older chickens greens, etc. and I am unsure of what I can feed them. Can they eat apples, pears, tomatoes, bananas? Is there a list of acceptable fruits and vegatables to feed your chickens?[​IMG]

    If you look in the Learning center at the top of the page there is a Chicken Treat Chart that gives you a list.

    Welcome to BYC! I started with chickens over the summer and the people of BYC have been great. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    Here is a BYC thread on treats for chicks.
