    My birds are 10 weeks old today. My wife began a juicing regimen a few weeks ago, and I was thinking that the leftover pulp would be great to give to the birds. I searched here and found some mixed answers both good and bad. Can anyone who is doing it(or not) recommend it? or tell me lf it is a good or bad idea?
    Thanks!

    Fresh fruits & veggies are always great for your chickens.

    They will love it.

    Are they citrus pulps? I've heard that citrus fruits are hard on a chicken's digestive system.

    I'd feed it to them. Just be sure to give them grit as well, if they do not already have it. I routinely feed things like that to my birds from day one, including citrus fruits. My chicks' favorite food always seems to be oranges sliced in half. 25 chicks can demolish a large orange in minutes!
