    I have a few cans of split pea soup with ham & bacon madeby Campell's. Can I feed it to my girls?

    I bet they'll love it, just feed a little at a time though, not all the cans at once...VERY salty...

    I don't see why not, split pea soup already canned has been cooked..but knowing me and I was in your shoes, I would be reading the ingredients to make sure there was nothing in there that would be toxic to chickens. a few days a ago while I was filling my daughter backpack full of canned and dry goods for the school food drive I found 2 cans of sardines, I wasn't sure if I could feed them to them so I looked it up, and then yesterday while I was sure it would be ok I researched zucchini and celery...lol....I am always afraid to give them something new without really looking into it. I guess its because I have had one really bad experience with a pet.

    I'd say that'd be fine! Maybe use a couple of pie pans or something scattered about, so they can all get to it, without just a few birds hogging it all! [​IMG] Not that chickens would EVER do that, of course! LOL [​IMG]

    Mine fight over it at first but they finally give in & they all get some. Well, I did give it to them & they liked it.
