    I have read lots of posts on here on what treats too feed the chicens and what they love to eat ( seems like they will eat any thing put in the pen) So just wondering what is a NO NO to give them. Is there foods that are bad for them that they would still eat if given???

    If you can eat then they can eat it.

    Nothing moldy, nothing rotten, I would not give them lots of salty food if they are short of otherwise better feed, and I personally prefer not to give them large amounts of sugary/high fat foods such as cake icing.

    Pretty much though if you can eat it they can.
