    Hi! I was wondering if chickens could eat cheese. I've fed them cottage cheese, and they ate it all up, but can they eat old macaroni and cheese? What about cheese scraps, like the kind you'd put in a sandwich? Thanks in advance for any help!

    I believe dairy products will give chickens diarrhea. It's probably better to avoid it.

    As with most chicken treats, cheese should be fed to chickens in moderation.

    I feed my flock cheese every so often, I feed them anything I eat except onions and potato peelings. Moderation is the key.
