Food

Hi there all, just a quickie. I have a box of Fruit and Fibre that no-one seems to want to eat in the house; will my, soon to arrive, chickens enjoy it?

They,d probably prefer Corn-flakes 8-[ ..............really though its preferable to stick to what they have been eating in their previous home at least until they settle in.
A change of home and a change of feed can add to the distress they will suffer with the move,i know it would only be offered as a treat but if i was you i,d either bin it or eat it yourself. It could run the guts out of them too which would,nt be good for birds settling into a new environment but entirely up to yourself what you decide. :-k

OK thanks, I was just going to offer it in the afternoons but I did wonder if it might be just a tad too much fibre! Fruit and fibre for me tomorrow then ... :|

A good portion of a chickens natural diet is fibre, so I wouldn't think anything fit for human consumption would be an issue.
