I found worms started hatching on tortillas that were in our drawer and considered feeding them to my chickens, but then thought the tortillas must also have worm eggs in them. Can chickens contract worms from eating worm infested tortillas?
If worms can kill chickens from them eating them Mine would have been Long Dead.Chickens as gross at it sound's will eat just about anything that moves,Worm's,Grub's,Beetle's , Bug's,Spider's, Maggot's etc.That's why a lot of People "Free Range" bird's.They find an Endless Natural assorment of food.Some people raise Live mealworm's for them. They will be fine.
Thanks everyone. Just wanted to make sure. My chickens free range and I dig up field worms for them for fun, but the tortillas were a mangled mess and I just thought they are probably full of worm eggs. But, sound like it wont hurt.
Your birds probably eat crickets and grass hoppers, which without cooking has to possibility of carrying at least one internal parasite I know (the tape worm). I imagine there are most likely more. I would probably feed it to them as long as it wasn't moldy. Some say moldy food isn't a big issue, but I know moldy feed will kill birds. So I tend to stay away from anything moldy.
