    Should be fine. If they were with a broody, they'd probably be eating it.

    They can eat lots of things that you probably have on hand.
    Oatmeal, cornmeal, plain grits, lots of cereal like Cheerios,

    Sure. Should not be a regular diet, too much calcium, but it certainly isn't going to hurt them for a day or two.
