    ok so i had the brillant idea of buying a 50# bag of sweetfeed for horses, cracked corn,wheat , oats and MOLASES. i tryed a beer recipe that i didnt care for that much. so now i have about 47# of sweet feed and no horses. can my chickens eat it if i dole it out a little at a time? or should i put it in baggies and take it to work and give it to people i dont like and tellem its home made. or maybe make a few hundred gallons of beer and learn to like it.

    Chickens can eat all of that, but from my experience I don't like to feed Molases. My birds always seem so high strung from is if feed over a period of time. Kind of like a constant sugar rush. Other wise I would say it would be fine. Someone else might have a different opinion.
