Chicken Diet Worries...
(West Covina, US)
I had a question about feeding my chickens soybeans in there diet? Does it harm them if I feed soybeans and green peas in there diet because I blend them and feed it to them as part of there diet without boiling it and also what symptoms should I look for if my chickens get sick from eating moldy feed thank you,!!!!!!!
MEG: UNCOOKED PULSES LIKE BEANS AND PEAS CONTAIN AN ENZYME THAT BLOCKS THE UPTAKE OF PROTEIN IN THE GUT. GIVE FISH OR MEAT MEAL TO COMPENSATE, OR BETTER YET, EITHER COOK OR SPROUT YOUR PULSES, OR BUY NON VEGETARIAN PELLETS FOR YOUR BIRDS.
