"Government Regulations for feeding s"Ooops, word censored!"s to chickens

The kind people at DEFRA have contacted Omlet and pointed out the Offical Government Guidelines for feeding kitchen s"Ooops, word censored!"s to chickens!"


but the link doesn't work, and I can't find it.


Can anyone help - juts wondered what on earth it will say !!


Thanks, H

Hazel: It is a DEFRA link that is dead, so you might be better contacting them. But they have revamped their website, and may no longer have the information online (I can't find it, anyway).


As for feeding s"Ooops, word censored!"s to chickens, if you see what they eat when given a free choice (yuk) I wouldn't worry too much. Just not real rubbish like sweets or anything salted, and remember that birds (not being mammals) can't digest milk. You are not supposed to give them meat and fish, but they adore it (er -- so I am told).

The DEFRA advice is that no food given to the chickens should AT ANY TIME come into contact with meat or meat products (in a nutshell!). Although, as Gallina says, they are not vegetarian (I don't think that slugs, snails, frogs and mice count as veg yet anyway!) so I feed mine most of our kitchen s"Ooops, word censored!"s. And if there is a bit of ham on a leftover sandwich, or a bit of gravy to go with leftover mash ......... They certainly wolf down their evening porridge of s"Ooops, word censored!"s! :roll::lol:

- I rather assumed the DEFRA advice was geared to large scale opperations and was simply interested to see what it said.


For 2 chickens, I think common sense should prevail.


(Snowy - I haven't forgotten about sending photo's - simply haven't had time - will try over Easter break - 2 (at least) are quite nice)


Thanks everyone - can't wait for tomorrow !!!!!!!!!!!
