Veggies scraps, either raw or cooked, have been given to chickens for centuries. These contain lots of easily digestible fiber, vitamins and minerals that are important in the diet of birds, both when on or off laying times. We often chopped cooked vegetable scraps into the warm mash feed for the hens in the winter, along with any leftover porridge or soggy cereal, which they loved! A good balanced diet, with particularly scraps of cabbage, broccoli and carrots usually means that giving artificial - often pricey -tonics through the winter is not necessary.
