I did'nt even give it a second thought when I did it! I threw 2 apples my kids did'nt finish out in the yard for the chicks to have. I did'nt think about the seeds.. are they able to digest the seeds? They get chick grit, so I'm hoping they'll be ok. They would'nt eat the apple skin. It was odd.. those apples looked like a deflated balloon! I just hope I haven't messed up!
