    My chickens are 5 months old now and have just began to lay eggs. Going to be changing their food.
    Can they have orange peels as a treat?

    I don't think they're supposed to have any citrus.

    We toss citrus waste in the compost and the hens avoid it.

    My chickens love fruit, and will peck the insides of the meyer lemon rinds they find in the compost.

    What's the issue with citrus and chickens?
