    Is it harmful to feed dry roasted, unsalted peanuts to my chickens? The peanuts are a little stale, but thought they might be a treat for the girls.

    I should think it'd be fine. Go for it. : ) I know several people on here that have their own feed recipe for their chickens, and it includes raw, non salted peanuts. : ) Hope your chooks like it and give you lots of yummy eggs in thanks.

    You can feed the peanuts to them, but make sure you stand back. :)
