    Raw potato peelings
    White bread
    Well You can feed them most fruits , veggies and seeds so don't feed them anything other then that then
    I will add more when I look it up

    I think if i read this correctly that your asking food like table scraps. I've read that green potato skins aren't good for them.
    Also for healthy food I know mine LOVE meal worms(I get mine dried) and they're packed with protein. Hope that helps some [​IMG]

    if you go to the learning section, and in the managing you flock category, there is a list of treat to feed, and not to feed. it also has the nutritional value of the treats. hope this helps!

    I am talking about foods in general. Yes I heard that mealworms were full of protein! I will get some, but not sure when I can.

    I have heard that bread fed to often to chickens can cause sour crop. Is this true?
