    I just found out yesterday that my chickens love bread. Is it ok to give them in moderation?

    Some love bread, and it is OK to give it as a treat.

    Hi! Yep, bread is okay. It just has little nutritional value so, as you said, feed it in moderation.

    My husbands grandfather feed his chickens bread everyday so we started that too. We soak it in water and sometimes add yogurt or applesauce to it. It seems to fill them up for a while. They also love dried meal worm which are a lot of protein. Are yours free range?

    I feed mine bread every other day. They go crazy nuts for it.
    My chickens will become your best friend if they see you with bread
