    So have have a leftover box of Fiber One Cereal. I'm going to toss it but then I thought about the chicks.

    Could I smoosh it and give it to them? It's:

    Corn Bran
    Whole Grain Wheat
    Wheat Bran
    Corn Starch
    Guar Gum
    Color
    Cellulose Gum
    Salt
    Baking Soda
    Corn Oil
    Aspartame
    Vitamin E

    Any thoughts?

    its not like you're going to feed it to them every day, or even give it to them as the only food for an entire day.

    Theres no reason it should hurt them. I've given mine scraps of cereal as snacks.

    Right, just as a snack. They get groats and grit right now for treats, and I figure that this would prevent tossing a perfectly fine box of cereal!

    How old are these birds?

    I'd give to hens, crushed...but not to younger birds...and I'm always leery of dyes
