In the Brooder
- Sep 4, 2013
Hello! I am new here and I have just started feeding 4 young hens that belong the the farm next door. The person they actually belong to feeds them "feed", although I don't know what type. I have started feeding them veggie scraps that are too good for the compost. I have read here what not to feed etc. But my question is, how much? For example, will too many tomatoes in one day make them sick? Etc... We have a large garden and eat primarily veggies, so there are a lot of scraps. Yesterday I gave them 2 or 3 large chunks of tomatoes and one frozen peeled banana. Is that too much? Tonight I plan on the peel (and pits???) of four peaches and more tomato. Does this sound ok?
