Is cream cheese and sour cream okay for my chickens?

    I have managed to acquire quite a stockpile of cream cheese and sour cream. Would love to give some to my chickens in their oatmeal or mixed with scratch grain, but I'm not sure if it's okay. Does anyone know for sure? Thanks!

    We have 3 Jersey milkcows, so we usually always have extra milk on hand, sometimes the birds get a warm mash made out of milk, and of whey left over from making vinegar cheese.

    I have given my birds meals of raw milk and bread when I had extra and not had a problem.
