    Hey there- I bought a juicer this past month and just started mixing oatmeal in with some pulp left over from the juice (spinach, carrots, apples etc).
    Does any one else do this? Is to much fiber going to be bad for my chickens?

    I think it should be fine. I give my chickens oatmeal whenever I have extra.

    Hey David-
    I have been giving them the fiber from my juicing mixed with oatmeal each morning and they go nuts for it! It's been pretty cold here in WNY so I think they appreciate a warm breakfast :)

    You guys are getting it rough over there. We in MI have had the worst winter in decades but still aren't having anything near your weather! I guess it just evens out all the years we have worse winters! :) The oatmeal should be totally fine btw.
