    I soaked a bunch for human soup....didn't get back to it in time. I had given some to the hens. They wouldn't touch them. Now, what do I do with the rest of them? I thought about grinding them up or even cooking them. What would you do with them if they aren't eating them natural?[​IMG]

    Dried beans can be toxic.

    Cook them first. They will eat them then.

    I thought beans and peas were not in the same family. For example a huge part of pigeon diet is dried peas. field peas, pigeon peas, cow peas (black eyed crowder types)
