    Mine have with no problems at all. I had a bunch of raw spanish peanuts leftover after making brittle, so the chickens got a treat.

    Quote:Although you'll never get me to admit that chickens have anything that even remotely resembles intelligence, mine have learned one thing.
    Our pecan tree is south of our carport. The chickens have learned that if they wait until after we pull a vehicle out - and run over a bunch of pecans in the process - they can have a pecan feast.
