    Here's my story. My chicks were free-ranging around my patio earlier today when one happened to discover my cat's bowl with wet cat food in it. The chick that found it devoured the cat food and others joined in before I could even stop them. Will it harm my babies? The cat food brand is Pet Pride that comes in a can and the flavor is chicken and tuna dinner? Appreciate all the help. [​IMG]

    I don't think so. I feed my chickens wet cat food as an occasional treat and they go nuts over it.

    I've seen online where they give wet cat/dog food as a treat. I wouldn't worry.

    Quote:I can't imagine it hurting them. I have hand raised dozens of wild baby birds who have fallen from their nest on wet cat food, some did not even have feathers yet, and they all thrived. I'm sure they will be just fine! [​IMG]
