Hello all, we are down to 3 hens and although it's been a good run I don't think I can manage this summer. We are expecting our first baby next week and with c-section recovery and other issues I'm not feeling confident nor looking to care for them this summer. They are approximately 3 years old, bought them as chicks from the local stock shop and have been used to produce scraps, free range of backyard and doing their thing. 2 barred rock, 1 australorp. Must take All. Have a feed bad to go…See More

"Thanks everyone for your advice, they were from my coworker specifically for the hens ... kinda in exchange for eggs. I need to get my own garden going so they have a nice supply of snacks available! I did chopped raw and most of them liked it"
"My coop is built around my compost bin, so my girls eat whatever gets tossed into the compost. When I'm out in the garden they all hover waiting for me to toss whatever leaves or greens I have available. They seem to like everything they can…"
"We hand feed them the whole raw green bean letting the girls rip off a piece. Some of the girls love them, some only want the seeds in the middle. We also give them organic vegeys with green beans chopped up. They will eat them…"
"First I'm wondering why you're not eating the beans yourself. Especially if they are garden raised! :)
Our chickens are pasture hens, so they forage daily. They will eat the beans raw and whole, and are able to break up the husks.…"
"I would chop them up and give them to the hens raw. When I cook beans, I give the ends to the chickens, along with other veggie scraps. If your chickens don't seem too interested in the raw beans, you could steam them to soften them…"
This may be silly but .... my coworker gave me a bag of green beans from her garden (I assume). Should I boil them and give to my hens, leave them raw and chop them up? Open them all up and take out the actual bean? Please advise!See More
Full-time RN, constantly traveling and trying to escape Phoenix. Hopefully getting involved in this will make Phoenix and my backyard a better place for me. So far we have hens, need to work on a veggie garden ,want some fruit trees and would like to go further into this as time goes on. I am married to a man willing to journey this with me. Music fuels my soul.
