    I am into canning anything and everything I can get my hands on. My question is can chickens eat sweet potato skins and carrot trimmings? I do not want to poison my girls.

    Can chickens eat mandarins? I have a full tree of mandarins that are too much for me.

    In moderation. Mine are getting some today, in fact.

    ETA: Oh, they won't eat the peels, so cut them in half for them to peck put the centers.
