    Moldy bread isn't a topic that belongs in the "emergency" section of BYC but today, I accidentally fed my chickens... moldy bread. On the bread, the mold were white like complete white but it was only in spots and some slice have a big chunk of the mold. It wasn't a loaf, it was only like 5-6 slices. I'm now monitoring them, they have fresh water just to help flush out the toxins if they get botulism, and gave them a whole bag load of bok choy vegetables. They haven't have unusual feces yet. Anything else to consider? I'm a bad owner... :(:rolleyes:

    Your not a bad owner these things happen.You have the right mind set keep a eye on them,but sounds like your taking care of them.I think they will be fine mold is not as toxic to them as us.
