I've been told that letting your chickens eat stryofoam will make shells harder.. True or not?!?
Now thats the strangest story I've EVER heard.
NO - giving them egg shells or oyster shell will make their shells harder.
Quote:uhh... I'm gonna say not...
So THAT'S why my egg shells are so hard!
If there's a piece of styrofoam within five miles of their coop, my chickens will find it and devour it!
So, since I caught them with a flourescent pink piece yesterday that means I should be getting some hot pink eggs right?
Sorry for my silliness. It won't do anything for their eggs.
What is it about Styrofoam??? Chickie finds it in the neighbor's yard all the time. He gets so excited, calls me over to see what he is eating and seems so proud of his discovery!
I thought my girls were the only ones that love styrofoam!
I had put up the pink foam board insulation in their coop...had to replace it all because they ate it. Now it is covered with hard plastic.
And after that, they now have a taste for the stuff, so anytime we ever have leftovers from a restaurant and it is in a styrofoam container, we have to dump it out of the container or else they will eat that and not the leftover treats.
Darn chicks love styrofoam, mine go crazy over it. I keep it away, but they seem to find it where ever.
why do they love styrofoam so much? when i take styrofoam outside to put it in the shed, i'm nearly chased down and eaten when i try to seal the "Sty Bucket"!
I agree! It's weird how they're drawn to the stuff.
My neighbors swear it was the reason their chooks grew so fast!
isnt it bad for them....wont make them sick or kill them?
