    Oops- I posted this question in the "coops and runs"...this seems better...

    So where do I draw the line on what to let my girls eat or not eat. I have 3 hens.
    I've been told that milk is really good for them which surprises me, but I'm ok with that.

    I do give them scraps from plates but leave off meat and eggs. Then last night I read that some meat and eggs are good for them (protein)...but still have a prob with the idea of them eatting eggs cause it seems cannibalistic.

    Big question, should I give them left over cake or anything made with sugar or containing chocolate? And how bout if bread has mold on it...will that harm them?
    Thanks for any help.

    And since my "wrong forum" post, I WAS informed that mold is BAD! thats good to know.
