    Can you feed chickens oatmeal with raisins? I know my girls love oatmeal [​IMG] - but am wondering if raisins are OK to feed them.

    Thanks - Heidi

    Gosh, I hope so. Mine have gotten lots of food with raisins in it! And there are lots of raisins in the bird seed I put out and the chickens are constantly under my bird feeder. No one seems to have gotten sick in all the years I have been doing it.

    I give them to my girls.

    No problems so far, but others may tell you different. I can;t see a problem as long as it is a treat.
