I've given my chickens fruits like bananas and cantaloupe, as well as lettuce because they really enjoy getting fresh treats. I want to continue giving them new fruits and vegetables but I'm wondering if and what foods I should avoid giving my chickens? Thanks!

Avocado (well the pits and peel are supposedly the worst, but I avoid it altogether out of habit from keeping parrots). Lol.

Never ever give them rice they will die. Bread is okay. I like to give them bread in the winter.

I've given mine rice jasmine rice and they lived.

That is lucky. That is why at weddings rice is no longer thrown, because it expands in the avian digestive system and they cannot, for lack of a better term, 'Fart' and it kills them. That is why bird seed was thrown as long ago as my wedding. I have been married to my wife 18 years this December.
