    Rehoboth, Ma
    Just a quick question, we make our own juice at home from fresh fruits and veggies so I was wondering if the scraps from the juicer are fine to give the chickens? To me it seems fine but I wanted to make sure it wasn't something I am missing?

    Yes, it sounds fine to me. Fruits and vegetables are great for chickens. I'm sure your birds will enjoy the scraps.[​IMG]

    On Monday I took my juicer out(haven't used it in a long time). I did figure on giving the chickens and the ducks the leftover veggie/fruit pulp. I used all organic veggies and fruit......carrots, celery, beets, strawberries, apples...... The chickens and the ducks wouldn't eat it. I'm not sure why.... My husband said it was because I drank all the flavoring ....LOL![​IMG]

    I feed all my juice pulp to my chickens and ducks. They love it and come running every time I go outside waiting for their treat. I have noticed they like some things more than others. Occasionally there is something they really don't like, but if that's the case they just don't eat it.
