    I used to take care of yards of homes with back yard chickens. I noticed that they gave them melons and other foods, but it always had a large amount of mold. I like the composting and table scrap idea for my future chickens, but is mold on food safe?

    Nope, mold is not for man nor beast. It is best to not use any thing or feed with mold on it.

    Good eye,
