    I am not sure where to post this so I hope this is a good spot.

    I have about 45 lbs of medicated chick starter that I don't need and tons of wild birds plus my own flock of hens. So what to do with all that feed? I plan on getting more chicks in the spring but since feed only has a 60 day shelf life it doesn't pay to keep it. So... would it hurt the wild birds to set it out for them?

    Thanks for any help or opinions! I did try to google it but didn't find any useful information.
