Can you feed chickens food scraps? Typically, backyard and small farm chickens also eat food scraps from the farm household. This can include anything besides beans, garlic, raw potatoes, onions, and citrus. You can feed them beans, garlic, and onions, but the eggs might taste funky. Raw potatoes can be poisonous to chickens.
Do chickens get cold feet? Birds' feet have a miraculous adaptation that keeps them from freezing. The system cools the blood so the little blood that goes down to the feet is already cold, so the birds don't lose much heat. The small amount that goes to the feet is likely just enough to keep the feet fromfreezing.
Can chickens free range in the winter? During the winter you shouldn't let your chickens free range: they should be kept in the coop/run area, and this is why it's important that their run is ready for the wintertime. The most important aspect of the-run is to keep them safe from predators, but it should also help keep them warm.
Can you give chickens porridge? Poultry Porridge is a nutritious porridge for chickens to feed during the winter months. Feed as a treat, as part of a balanced diet.
