We have 28 chickens and 3 ducks. they get 5 grain scratch and a crumble laying mix all the time. I have been getting day old bread and giving them 2 or 3 loafs a day and they love it. Someone just told me that chickens can't have bread!!! What they Hay - I've been feeding them this since they were old enough to be put out in the pen so I'm hoping it's not bad for them. They also get oyster shells, free range when we're home, greens and veggies, plants from the garden and slugs & snails we find. They love lettuce! I have had one Turken get egg bound but that's to BYC web site, after a hot bath and massage she was fine. Wow! After reading this - I think I should be one of my chickens! Free food and bath & massage! Can't get much better than that! So that said, my chickens seem healthy and happy except for some purchased chicken but that's another post! Does anyone else feed bread?
