    Can I feed bread or toast with jam to my chickens? I know they love bread, but will all the sugar in the jam screw them up or make them unhealthy? My kids don't always eat all their sandwich or toast, the chickens seem like a great place for the leftovers.

    Should be fine in moderation.

    I often give them bits of my sarnies that have jam or jelly on it, but I don't add more than the small amt that is on there to begin with. Too much added sugar isn't good!!

    But natural sugar <IE whole fruit etc> is ok....again not a lot cos like people, too much whole fruit can give them runs.
