No, what I meant is they coat the pellets in something to keep them in the pelleted shape, and that coating makes it hard for them to digest. Also, I really wouldn't recommend feeding rabbit pellets. Maybe a few as a treat, but think about it, chickens don't gorge themselves on timothy or alfalfa, and that's what the pellets are made from. They are grazing animals, they are foragers. They just peck and bugs and small stones and only nibble at plant matter.
I didn’t question your chickens diet, I simply shared mine. I’m glad your flock is fed well, I too feed my flock a balanced are nutritious diet. It may not look identical to what you do, but we all do things differently, and that’s is ok as long as the animals are being cared for and kept healthy and happy, and mine are .They for sure are getting a balanced complete diet...unlike whats happening to your birds (most likely) who get to pick and choose.
