Are Raisins good for chickens?
Keeping this in consideration, is it okay for chickens to eat raisins?
Due to their small nature raisins are very easy to make sure you get the right portion compared to other fruits. On average you should be feeding your chickens about 10 grams of raisins per chicken, this should be enough to give your chicken a treat without overfeeding them.
Likewise, what kind of nuts can chickens eat? Miscellaneous: Cooked nuts are fine, as are raw crushed acorns, walnuts, hickory nuts, or pecans. Wild bird seed and sunflower seed are fine, and it's okay to leave the hulls on. A little dry pet food or a few pet treats occasionally are okay, but don't feed too often or too much.
Subsequently, question is, what should you not feed chickens?
What Not to Feed Chickens: 7 Things to Avoid
- Avocadoes (mainly the pit and peel) As with most of the things on this list, I was able to find several people who report feeding avocado to their flock without problem.
- Chocolate or Candy.
- Green Potato Skins.
- Dry Beans.
- Junk Food.
- Moldy or Rotten Food.
How many times a day should I feed my chickens?
Lots of water. Feed your chickens at regular times each day. Chickens need to eat all day, so always have good quality feed in their pens. A good format to follow is to top their feed up in the mornings and let them out for 30-60 mins in the late afternoon.
