    I can't see why this would be a problem to feed the girls? The dressing is just olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and it has olives, feta, tomato, cuke and the odd bit of onion. Any reason they shouldn't get this? It's not gone bad, it's jus a bit mushy from being in the fridge about two days longer than it should have been...

    My girls love to share my dark green salads with a lot of fixin's (especially cheese) but if it's been stored in the frig too long, like any of it is soggy or spoiled (mushy) ,and I wouldn't eat it, my girls don't get it. Sometimes I've put some great salad in the frig meaning to give it to them, then a couple of days go by and it's too late to feed it to them. I had good intentions in saving it for them, though.

    Oh, and [​IMG].

    I agree with dewey,

    I give mine anything I would eat.

    In the case of Greek salad I'd have to throw away the Kalamata olives.

    Imp- get the idea that Imp does not like Kalamata olives. [​IMG]

    I love black olives, but any pickled ones gag me; green, purple, kalamatas etc.

    To the OP (kermujin) olives are just fine for chickens.

    Imp- just in case there was any confusion. [​IMG]

    Yep, they love them all. I learned to never allow my grand kids out near the girls when grandma just stuck black olives on each one of their fingertips. [​IMG]
