    Any time. Just don't overdo it.
    All things in moderation.

    Understand that the chicken feed is balanced nutrition.

    When adding things, think about how it affects the balance. Lay off too much bread or pasta. If giving a lot of those plus fruits and vegetables, balance it with some animal protein like meat or fish.
