    I've seen all kinds of post on stuff you can feed them, how about starting a what they can't eat I'll keep up with it ever so often and post all the stuff that they cant in alphabetical order if everyone one wants to just post what they know they cant have and why???

    I think somewhere on here is a section of thing that chicken can not eat. But I might be wrong.

    Just about everything except for molded food; mold will kill them. No potatoe peelings; cannot digest properly. I save my egg shell, rinse them out, let them dry, crush real fine and feed back to them. They get calcium from this. [​IMG]

    Here's an easy rule of thumb-if you can eat it they can eat it.
