    I'm cooking up a batch of lobsters and am wondering if I can give the shells, etc. to my chickens. It's not on the treat list or the do not feed list and for some reason my search function is not working properly so I can't find another post about it. Can someone give me a clue? I'd really appreciate it, and I think the chicks might too. Thanks.

    Sure, I would if they aren't too salty. Even if they are salty, in moderation they are fine. Half if not most of the do not feed list I toss out for them to eat if they wish. Granted, I do free range and they can choose to eat or not, as they do not eat things out of boredom.

    Mine have had leftover lobster and loved it. Heck, I feed pretty much all of our scraps of anytype to the chickens. Everything except extremely spicey and very salted. At the end of the day if anything is left in their little trough then I'll toss it in the field for whatever animal comes along next and will eat it (which is usually my outside cats).

    Thanks so much for replying so quickly. I'm getting ready to shell out the meat now and as soon as the shells cool I'll bring them out to the girls. Hope they like it. [​IMG]
