    I don't know but I have given it to them before I realized that I did it. They didn't really seem to love it but they eventually ate it. Either way it didn't kill them so go ahead! [​IMG]

    I think so but don't over due it
    the best treats are the very dark leafy veges at the grocery store till your garden veges come in
    If they eat it it is okay
    They should like the sweet taste of it
    Don't buy head lettuce as it is watery and waste of money on chickens no calories
    use spinach, swiss chard, kale, collards
    and you can take a head of cabbage and wrap in a piece of chicken wire and hang from ceiling
    they will eat at it and enjoy the work and cabbage
