    My chickens are nutso for millet seed.They know where we keep it and are constantly trying to sneek in and raid the bag. Between 7 of them they get about 2 cups a day. They free range the rest of the time and always have their layerfeed available. Thanks!

    Like other scratch grains, they are fine, if they do not begin to dominate their percentage of caloric intake. Chickens get addicted to things just like teenagers, but it doesn't mean that is all they should eat, all the time, of course.
