    Hi - just wondering if it's okay to give our chickens the occasional snack of dulse? We eat quite a bit of it at home as a snack and wondering if its fine for chickens. I've heard of people supplementing their birds with sea kelp so I'm wondering if dulse would be similar. Thanks!

    It's high in sodium, so I'd go very lightly with it.
