How much can you give chickens in a day? Like leftover/scraps type stuff? Bread, bananas, greens also?

I feed mine every day, however, most of what they get is kale, lettuce, peas, one slice whole wheat bread, a little frozen corn, & flax seed. About 3x a week they get some cat food or fresh meal worms. I do try not to give them junk. The majority of their food comes from their start & grow. I have 17 pullets, so the little bit of bread & corn is not significant. They also get chick grit, & I've been throwing them a little oat hay. My horses are ticked off, but the chickens love it.

Thanks! I've been giving mine the ends of our whole grain bread and they LOVE it!! I don't give mine yucky moldy stuff either since I read on here that that's bad for them. So I have 9 all together and I give them 3-4 pieces of bread every few days. I give them some kind of snack every day, so maybe a couple bananas chopped up or a head of cabbage, some spinach. So can I give them more per day or stick to once a day?
