This is a question that many people ask themselves when they are deciding what to feed their chickens. Kiwi is a fruit, and while there may not be any evidence of chickens eating them, it doesn’t mean that they can’t!

In this article, we will discuss if kiwi is safe for your chicken to eat and how much of it you should be feeding them!

 

Chickens like most fruits in small amounts because they contain some nutrition but too much sugar and the wrong type of protein can lead to health problems.

If you have never seen your chicken trying anything other than plain food pellets or vegetables then try giving her an occasional piece of kiwi just as you would with grapes or apple slices.

The benefit of the fruit is that you are adding a few nutrients to the diet. If she still seems hesitant, feed it to her whole at first so she gets used to its texture and has time for it passes through her digestive system before eating more since Kiwis don’t digest well if eaten quickly due to their high fibre.
