10 Foods Your Chickens Should Avoid

Chickens as miniature trash compactors – they will eat just about anything you give them, but there are some things that aren’t good for them. Here is a list of things that you should not feed your chickens:

1. Raw Green Potato Peels









They contain a toxic substance called Solanine which affects the nervous system.

2. Citrus








Build up of citric acid and vitamin C often leads to feather plucking.

3. Onions








Contains a toxin substance called thiosulphate that destroys red blood cells.

4. Salty Foods








Some salt is okay, but too much can be deadly.

5. Chocolate








It contains methylxanthines and theobromine, which are toxic to birds and many other pets.

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war.
