    Good morning! You're not alone being in a different time zone, I'm usually online online during the middle of the night for most. :lol:
    As for foods you can't feed your chickens, there isn't much. They'll eat most stuff. Mine eat a lot of meat and fatty scraps, they absolutely love it weirdly enough.
    As for suet, I just did a search, and that appears to be fine. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/622141/feeding-chickens-beef-suet
    Found a quite informative thread in regard to poisonous stuff: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/494101/what-is-toxic-to-chickens I don't know much about it personally, but there's some info there.
