I recieve alot of out of date stuff, Gatorade, yogurt, cottage cheese, breads snack cakes..They perfer the Gatorade over the water, I keep both in the pen.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.
