is lard bad for chickens? I see suet cakes for birds all the time
I'm old time Tennessee and everything here eats lard
I wouldn't just feed them gobs of it but, in moderation it shouldn't hurt them . get some corn meal and bake them a pone of bread once a week or so with lard in it if you have surplus lard.
I wouldn't feed mine lard, but someone else may know more than i do about chickens, these are the first i've had in probably close to 30 years but I never did feed them meat,potato peelings or anything greasy, marrie
Ewwww....that sounds kinda yukky. Makes my tummy hurt.
I was wondering this today too!
Might give 'em the runs... well, more than the usual runs, if you know what I mean.
Quote:I agree, and will try that. Moderation is the key word here I think. Can't be any worse for the runs than watermelon. In moderation.
Feed lard to your birds is a waste of lard.
Quote:I was thinking they ment old or rancid lard for the birds , i would never suggest fresh creamy white , still with that cracklin smell lard !
No it wont give them the runs in corn bread like i said i wouldn't just scoop gobs of it to them.
It will make your dog shine like new money !
