    i read how some people use cat food for moulting chickens...

    i have dogs...
    we have some canned dog food they didnt like.... would the chickens be alright?

    i plan to feed it to the only chicken that is moulting this winter.

    its one of the pedigree pouches of dog food.. if i gave it a little will it help for protein????

    (i know dog food is good... i remember when i was a kid i would eat that stuff.... : p )
