    I've just been giving my chickens whole sugar-snap pea pods (fresh, not steamed) and they seem to do just fine with those. Green beans are about the same consistency, so shouldn't be a problem raw.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    They can eat them raw, frozen, thawed, cooked whatever.

    Sorry, missed the part about the canned beans. Can't see any problem with that at all. Soft 'n good.
