some people say not to give your chickens white bread. what ideas does anyone have on this matter??
It's a treat, like it shoudl be for humans. There's no nutritional value in it so they risk filling up on it and no eating their feed.
another issue that causes the argument...white bread when fresh, is gummy and can stick to the mouth, clog up throats and pack crops.
if you want to give them some, leave it out for a day on the counter to go stale. then it shouldn't be an issue.
as with any 'treat', serve in moderation.
Moderation, moderation, moderation! You know, like wine and chocolate!!
It won't hurt them as long as it is not a substitute for their normal feed. Mine get all of our leftovers, including bread. It is considered a treat.
