    I have some home canned greenbeans, tomatoes and pickled beets that have aged longer than most people would eat...can I feed these to my chickens?

    The only ones that I wouldn't feed would be the Green Bean.. Just because there low acid and some Recipes call for salt when canning..

    Now the Tomatoes and pickled beets have a higher acid level and should be fine as long as the seals on them are still good...
