I've been reading what chickens love to eat. Is there anything I should never feed them?
I think there are various new threads about what not to feed chickens in the feeding and treats section. Oh yeah, your post is under forum feed back and announcements too. Click on index at the top and you will find the right section there.
Edit: looks like it already moved
Here's one of the threads on what NOT to feed your chickens.
Can they have the guts of my squash and pumpkin. I have given them hulled seeds and they loved them but I'm not sure if they can digest whole raw seeds.
Summer squash, the big, scary ones that have gone to seed, my chickens go crazy over them. It's the seeds that they go after first. I suppose they're okay to feed them, no problems yet.
thanks so much, I'm going out right now to give them a taste!
They gobbled up that squash like they hadn't seen food for a week. I love calling them from the front door to see them all race across the yard. It makes me laugh every time.
Can they eat mushrooms?
Mushrooms are one of the things you are supposed to avoid giving them.
The seeds of squash/pumpkins are supposed to add some sort of helpful defense against parasites. Don't know what or how in particular.
