    Hello

    Do any of you know if Chickens can eat Snails that are still in the shells. [​IMG]

    I just wish to know if Snails in Shells can Hurt them ( Like Constipation Or Impacted Crop Ect. )

    I'm sure they'll be fine. [​IMG] Chickens eat rocks, grit, oyster shell--I'm sure snail shells are fine. Bugs and crawlies:rolleyes: are a normal part of chicken diet. Mine even eat whole mice when they get the chance.
