    I recieve alot of out of date stuff, Gatorade, yogurt, cottage cheese, breads snack cakes..They perfer the Gatorade over the water, I keep both in the pen. I have`nt lost any birds from the heat. Am I doing the right thing by giving them the drink? Also I wiil toss a carton or two of cottage cheese and yogurt in the pen from time to time is that advised? I let the kids sit in the pen and hand feed the birds breads and snack cakes. Is that ok? I just wanna make sure that I am not harming them I can always feed the stuff to the bears, They really do like sweets! My chicken are free range, no small coops here.

    My personal belief is that the more natural food/water you feed them the better but that is a personal choice. Natural is usually better and healthier but they can survive on quite random and weird food/wateirng options.
