    A while back ago, I found a link to a very comprehensive list of what kinds of treats and scraps to give chickens, and it specifically indicated which items you should NOT give them. For the life of me, I cannot find that link now.

    So, I know chickens will eat pretty much anything, but what is unhealthy and should be avoided?

    Thx,
    Marty

    at the bottom of this list is a link to what not to feed and cabbage is on it, but at the top it says to hang one at the ceiling in the winter and let them peck at it. maybe just a mixed up cross reference?
