    Hi,

    is it okay to give my chickens and guineas suet blocks that I put out by the song bird feeders in the winter?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I've often thought about doing this as well, but worry that the fat content would just add fat and not enough protein - any other BYC'ers have any input?

    I don't know that I'd give them a lot, but mine will hang out under the suet feeders when it is getting shaken by a larger bird or squirrel, and eat the pieces that fall.
