    I have some soon-to-be expired cereal (captain crunch, trix, and fruity pebbles.) I was wondering if this would be ok to feed them? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Yes it is OK, as a treat.

    Trix are for chicks, [​IMG]

    Lots of sugar in those, I would go easy with it myself.

    I agree with duckinnut. That is A LOT of sugar to feed them. I avoid any non-natural sugar for my chickens but if you feed them a little, it should not hurt them. It is not good for them but they can tolerate it
