    I love the Stouffer's frozen mac and cheese, and I always get the large size because, for some reason, my local grocery sells it for the exact same price as the smaller size. More often than not, i have some left over, and the chookies really like eating it....I'm talking about maybe a cup for ten chickens. Anyone see anything wrong with that?

    Not at that ratio, I'm sure they love it.

    Well, chickens are omnivores like we are, so theoretically if you're fine with eating it your chickens would be too (except for a few things, like avocadoes).

    Personally, I try to steer clear of the processed stuff and so my chickens do too - I feel it makes for healthier eggs. Plus, chickens really shouldn't have a lot of salt, especially when it's hot out. But a little frozen mac & cheese probably won't kill your chickens, they do fine with much worse. I have read posts about chickens eating styrofoam peanuts and dead cats! [​IMG]

    Mine love the macaroni and cheese also, anything with pasta is fair game for them. I give them the ramen noodles as a treat and they love it. I don't put the little pack of seasoning in, just boil the noodles.

    I love mac and cheese and so do my chickens..but they don't get it too often because it's my great grandmother's recipe and it is usually gone when I make it.
