I just found out salt is poison to my chickens. I been feeding my chickens 2 cups of oatmeal and 2 Tablespoons salt when they get up on the wrong side of the bed and start picking on another chicken. None have never died and it always worked .I got this recipe from and old timer that raised chickens. The only time I lost a chicken was by an old coon. So does the salt kill the chicken or what does it do to the chicken that I am not aware of?
