Is it ok to feed porridge to chickens. I give my girls a bowl of porridge every lunchtime or evening and they adore it. I mix corn into it sometimes and they polish every bit of it off. Is it ok to give it every day - they still stuff all their layers pellets throughout the day - the porridge is just a treat. I sometimes substitute layers mash alongside their pellets but should I be doing this ? is it bad for them or does it not really matter ? My girls seem to adore it and are really healthy looking.
