Does salt hurt them? We have started giving them some table scraps/ food my kids decided they didn't like/ etc... - I thought I remembered from chicken class that these were all right - do I need to be concerned about the salt content in the scraps?
Salt is bad for chickens, they don't process it in the same way as mammals and increased sodium can lead to problems. It won't hurt them in small quantities, but it is something you should be conscious of. Table scraps are generally okay.
